Chinese Earthquake Drills


Parents protesting the deaths of their children in the Sichuan earthquake were removed by force from a courthouse in Dujiangyan, China. The protestors were apparently trying to file suit for what they believe were poorly built schools that couldn't withstand the quake. Police also forced journalists trying to cover the protest inside the courthouse and held them until the protestors had been hauled away. "These people were just disrupting society. The government will solve their problems," said an official with the local government.
