More than 30 taxi drivers from Suifenhe in Northeast China's Heilongjiang province staged a protest in Beijing's main pedestrian street in Wangfujing on Saturday, appealing for the right to renew their taxi licenses.

The men laid down on the ground in front of the Danyao Building on Wangfujing Street, with bottles of pesticides beside them, reports Ping'an Beijing, the official Weibo account of the Beijing Police.

The individuals are reported to have drunk the pesticide. But the police intervened on time and sent the individuals to a hospital. They are all reported to be in a stable condition.
