Farmers He Kechang, Ran Chongxin, Jiang Qingshan and Wen Dingchun have reportedly been detained incommunicado since March. He Kechang has reportedly been tortured, and the others are also believed to be in danger. They are among thousands of people whose homes will be flooded by the Three Gorges Dam, and they were arrested when they tried to complain about local officials who had embezzled funds intended for resettling them.
