A residential community in Changchun, Jilin province has blanketed its open square with dozens of devices to deter the hordes of dancing grannies or "dama" who occupy public spaces across China daily, much like Hong Kong democracy activists only much more pointless.
The devices, typically used to reserve parking spaces, now cover almost every inch of the once square.
The square reportedly suffered an inundation of the musical menaces and local residences were none too happy about their late-night musical shenanigans.
The new parking blocks are apparently retribution against dancing grannies who refused to leave the square after 10:00pm, when noise complaints prompted compound authorities to request their dispersal.
In total, there are 50 of the devices now installed in the square.
