China earthquake grieving parents

More than 100 grieving parents who lost children while attending school on the day of that horrific earthquake, gathered in front of a government building. The parents were protesting the shoddy construction which contributed to the death of their children. Police surrounded the grieving parents and dragged away several crying mothers. The police also removed some of the Chinese journalist trying to cover the event. The grieving parents were carrying framed photos of their deceased children. The police kept the parents surrounded for several hours, after which these poor grieving souls gave up and went home. This scene happened in Dujiangyan of Sichuan province in southwest
