The great wall of China is falling apart brick by brick
The great wall of China is falling apart brick by brick. A new campaign has been launched to save an ancient fortification, which stretches for approximately 13,000 miles (21,000 km) across Northern China, from criminal damage.

Built in the 3rd century BC Ming dynasty (1368-1644), the wall was built to protect the Empire, but parts of it now fall apart. The bricks were stolen to build the house, for agriculture or for sale as Souvenirs for tourists exacerbate natural erosion brought by the wind, rain and sandstorms.

Protection will include inspection, regular inspections and a hotline to inform members of the public the damage, the official news Agency Xinhua.

The state administration of cultural heritage (SACH) for the first time outlined the new rules at the beginning of this year, but the issue was in the headlines after the man in the video committed an act of vandalism. In the Internet there are viral videos.

According to official statistics, about 30% of the area of the Ming dynasty the wall had disappeared, and less than 10% are well preserved.

"The great wall of China is a place of vast heritage. It stretches for more than 20 thousand kilometers - this increases the difficulties in preservation and restoration," said Dong Yahui, Deputy Director of the great wall.
