Beichuan Middle School Collapse, News Story Published Then Disappears

A photo of a Beichuan Middle School Student is placed on a bouquet of white flowers near the ruins of the school, during the one year anniversary of the catastrophic 8.0 Sichuan Earthquake on the 12 May

Parents, Family Members and Friends mourning the tragedy near to the ruins of Beichuan Middle School, during the one year anniversary earlier this month. May God have Mercy.

On the 12 May I wrote here that parents lost children, too many children lost their parents, the entire world suffered a tremendous
loss of so much promise and potential.

Remembering China, Sichuan 1 Year Later

This week China Economic Weekly ran an important story about the terrible tragedy at Beichuan Middle School and the collapse of school buildings throughout Sichuan Province when the devastating earthquake struck.

Unfortunately but not surprising, the story disappeared because some government officials were not pleased that the story ran.

The story is very important and may be seen here in both English
and Chinese from China Media Project.
