The voters were being ironic, as the student dorms it houses are probably one of the most dangerous places to live in all of China: their windows are just inches away from a high voltage electric pylon.

"The building is occupied by students and migrant workers"

Weng Haofeng lives in Wuhan, China, where he writes the blog Weng Hao Feng Focus.

Residents told me that this so-called “awesome building” was built next to the high-voltage pylon in 2007 and all of its inhabitants are deeply worried about safety. When construction began, complaints were filed, and the authorities sent inspectors to examine the site. In the end, however, the building was still completed. People have only recently begun to move in. It mainly houses migrant workers and students." Students represent the future of our nation and migrant workers are its backbone, and yet they live in such dangerous conditions! Who will take responsibility if something were to happen here? "
