"ding zi hu" refers to the residents who defy the local government's order of moving out of their homes for settlement. These households are usually dislocated by some commercial projects and are compensated by the developers ( or government) but in many cases the compensation is hardly enough to start a new home. Therefore they refuse to move, even when construction is proceeding around ( literally) their homes. Thus the creation of the most astonishing scene on earth.

I guess the English equivalent is very hard to find. Actually I wonder there is one. Few countries would have implemented such highhanded policies on re-location issues resulting from new constructions ( commercial or governmental) as China has. In many countries, the compensation for relocating residents is so high that their government would not even consider it. It opts to detour the residential areas in the case of building a highway, for example.

I've considered "squatter" but after a second thought  deemed it inappropriate, because "squating" is unlawful, while ding zi hu, are legal households that have been living in their homes probably since day one.
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

Househusband, You are a very cool bilinguist indeed. Though you don't give a good translation for it, your interpretation does impress me a lot, especially the way how you weight each word... I ADMIRE YOUR ENGLISH!

Hi:

I would say "an exclusive interview with China's most stubborn house owner, who calims he is not this country's trouble-making citizen."
