C. Custer from China Geeks told the story of a 15-year-old girl activist, Zhan Haite, who struggles against the unjust household registration system in China.

Zhan may be an interesting example of what I might term the “dissidentification” of Chinese protesters. I have noticed and mentioned before how people frustrated with a specific issue in China seem to eventually become protesters and advocates in a more broad sense. Six months ago, Zhan was just a student, and shortly after that, she was just an opponent of Shanghai’s hukou policy.
