Hundreds protest Shanghai “MagLev” rail extension

Hundreds of people marched through China’s financial hub of Shanghai on Saturday protesting a planned extension of the city’s magnetic levitation train, or ”maglev”, worried it would emit radiation and sicken them. “I’m marching against the proposed line as it’s too close to town. It’s going to be noisy and emit pollution,” said one protester.
