郭国汀 纽约时报报导死难学生亲属周月悼念地震中无辜牺牲的亲人 |
南郭点评：“我们不要赔偿，我们要看到造成灾难的腐败官员付出承担罪责的代价”死难学生家长如是说；难属的此种要求合情合理，理应得到支持。但 是，若全体国人也仅仅追究地方腐败官员的刑事责任，而不追究中共胡氏专制暴政的制度性罪责，那文地震死难的近十万冤魂真是白死了。因为真正的罪魁祸首并非 腐败的地方官员，他们充其量仅应负次要罪责，真正的罪犯是中共专制暴政而最大的罪魁乃是胡锦涛，因为是他下令隐瞒地震预报的信息，胡氏至少犯下了间接故意 群体屠杀罪。只要专制暴政存在一天，类似的人祸灾难必定反复重演。全体国人应当坚决要求立即终结一党专制暴政，迫使中共政权还政于民还权于民，立即开放党 禁报禁言禁网禁，立即无条件释放一切政治犯，信仰犯。立即启动真实的政治体制改革实现自由人权民主法治宪政体制改革。才能真正对得起数千万被中共专制暴政 迫害致死的冤魂，才能一劳永逸地摆脱专制暴政的淫威和奴役。国人也才有可能从此过上自由，民主，人权，法治，宪政的幸福快乐自由的生活。
Chinas Quake Parents Lament One Month On

BEICHUAN, China (Reuters) - Anguished parents on Thursday marked one month since China's devastating earthquake, demanding answers about flattened schools and begging forgiveness from dead children buried under the rubble.
Two dozen parents gathered around a mound of concrete shards and twisted steel at what was a Beichuan school, one of many toppled by the quake even as government offices and homes nearby stayed upright.
A mother burned incense, ceremonial funeral money and a pile of her late daughter's clothes on the rubble, while other parents wailed apologies at children crushed under the ruins.
"Your mother is so sorry for this," cried the middle-aged mother of one girl, Chen Ya. "No. It was me. I'm so sorry," said Chen's grandmother.
The parents' laments jarred with government efforts to pass the one-month date without major ceremony, focusing instead on rebuilding and messages of determined patriotic unity.
Few families in hard-hit parts of Sichuan province in the nation's southwest escaped losses among those killed in the May 12 quake -- close to 70,000 according to the latest count, with many thousands missing and likely dead.
Beichuan, a valley town with 30,000 residents, has been abandoned, never to be rebuilt, with many dead entombed in its rubble.
The thousands of crushed children have become the most politically charged legacy of the disaster, distilling public anger about corruption and lax regulation blamed for shoddy school buildings.
"They said this building was strong and quake-proof, but when we saw it, the concrete was like talcum powder and the steel was as thin as noodles," said Mu Qibing, whose 17-year-old son was killed along with some 1,200 other pupils.
The ruins of another school at Juyuan were guarded by dozens of police, and the town 50 km (30 miles) from the province capital, Chengdu, blocked by checkpoints barring foreign reporters.
A planned memorial by parents of hundreds of children who died there was blocked by police who went door to door warning them to stay away, several parents said.
"All we want to do is remember them this day," Zhao Deqin, a mother whose 15-year-old twin daughters, Yajia and Yaqi, died.
At a flattened school in Wufu, where hundreds of children also died, about 80 parents held a brief memorial ceremony in the rain, some of them said by telephone.
"We gathered to remember our children and to pressure the government for answers," said one of those parents, Shang Jun, whose son Shang Xingping died in the quake.
We don't want compensation. We want to see the corrupt officials who let this happen pay for their crimes."
For other residents of this lush region of rice paddies and bamboo thickets, the one-month date began as just another day in what will be a long struggle to cope with sweltering, crowded tent camps and worries over jobs and education.
The government's response to the quake, with a sweeping relief operation and storm of patriotic propaganda, has so far won widespread public support. But as the vast rebuilding phase begins, the government is sure to be tested by victims' impatience for new lives.
Homeless residents face a sweltering summer in tented camps, lining up for food, clothes and whatever arrives on aid trucks. Soon, many will move into thousands of pre-fabricated huts rising quickly across the region.
In this poor farm country, where education is prized as an escape to prosperity, displaced parents said they worried about the disruption to surviving children's schooling.
Confinement to quake camps has also cut many people off from farms, jobs and business. And for many, day-to-day hardships have, for now, overshadowed mourning.
