NEWSBUD DAILY PICKS

Demonstrators hold banners with slogans to protest against a paraxylene (PX) project in Jinshan district in Shanghai on June 23, 2015. Several hundreds of residents gathered to protest after rumors of a plan to develop a PX plant in their neighborhood, which the Jinshan district government of Shanghai later denied in a "letter to citizens" released in the morning of June 23, 2015. Proposals for PX plants, often perceived as a health risk, have sparked large protests in several other Chinese cities in recent years.
