6.30am, 29 September07: Mr Sun Defu, 70, waits to make a final stand against the demolition team due to arrive to "force" his family out of their flat. The two-bedroom flat had been given out by his work unit when he started work as a mechanic in a state-owned company more than three decades ago, said Mr Sun.  He lamented: "All we're asking for is a roof over our heads. Is that too much to ask?" The family, which didn't bother to clean the house walls or floors properly for several months before their eviction, has since been compensated and moved to near the Fourth Ring Road. Their apartment block has been torn down in early November, swallowed by the looming CCTV Towers.
