China marked the anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Sichuan Province that struck one year ago. The quake was China’s worst in three decades, leaving an estimated 88,000 people dead.
Last week, authorities announced for the first time that more than 5,000 children were killed or missing, many of them trapped in classrooms. Parents blamed inferior construction.
Peter Kwong, a professor of Asian-American Studies at Hunter College, joins Martin Savidge to discuss what Chinese citizens have done to hold the Chinese government accountable in the aftermath of the earthquake.
