A photo collage of officers of the PAP (People's Armed Police) on guard in Tiananmen Square on Chinese National Day. This national paramilitary force is responsible for 'handling rebellion, riots, large-scale serious criminal violence, terror attacks and other social safety incidents' according to the Chinese state news agency Xinhua. Most of its recruits come from the rural poor, and are as much strangers to the city as any other migrant.
