Workers' struggles in China (July 2010)

Summaries and links to news reports of workers' struggles around China during July up to the 23rd. I've been posting to a Twitter feed as I find stories: http://twitter.com/spartacusnews. I can't continue with it or these summaries for a few months, but it's possible someone else will take over some of it for a while.
