Parents Of Sichuan Earthquake Victims Forbidden To Mourn Their Children
May 12th is Motherds Day 2013, as well as the 5th anniversary
of Wenchuan earthquake.
In Juyuan high school of Dujiangyan, Sichuan, 284 students
lost their lives in the earthquake five years ago.
A parent of one of the victims, Zhou Xingrong witnessed the
school building collapsing in seconds when the earthquake struck.
Zhou told media that, even on the anniversary of the deaths,
she had no freedom to mourn her child.
The day before, many secret security police and
plain clothes officers blocked Zhou Xingrong’s door.
They warned her “don’t go to your child’s school".
In Mianzhu, many parents gathered at FuXin second preliminary
school on May 12th where their children died in the earthquake.
Since they were forbidden by security police to set off firecrackers,
the parents burned paper money outside the school to mourn.
One of the parents Sang Jun told 64tianwang.com, local
officials had repeatedly visited all 126 parents of victims.
They were warned not to hold activities on the spot.
Sang also revealed that, the school’s liability insurance
purchased by them had been embezzled by the local officials.
In Wenchuan earthquake, about 7000 school buildings
collapsed, resulting in deaths of over 5300 students.
Many parents required the authority to thoroughly investigate
whether jerry-built construction existed in those schools.
However, the Chinese Communist party (CCP) has not admitted
any quality issues in construction of collapsed school buildings.
In 2009, some experts examined 44 school buildings in
57% of them were damaged so badly that
they were unable to be repaired.
This is four times higher than that of government buildings.
