I am afraid you are headedthe wrong route.

What most effectively counters corruption is - education, not fear.

Who would you shoot in the latest case?

Just the mine owner, or the loc ...


snakey snakey.

It will be much easier if you leave China a.s.a.p rather than you curse and scorn toward everything you see here.

Being a loser out there shouldn't be so bad.

NW,

I'm usually cool headed and don't show emotions quickly but when I saw the TV coverage of this mine accident and old mothers weeping because they lost their sons I could not but shed tears as well.

Safety standards of China's coal mines are one of the world's lowest. For a country like China there is no excuse. I expect top supervision and top mining and safety equipment to be used. China is still an emerging country but it is rich and the world's eyes are permanently focused on her. Please also note that the mine owner is no private person or private organization. This Heilongjiang mine is owned by the state!!!

What I sincerely hope is that those who managed this mine will be prosecuted with the FULL FORCE of the law and i mean it.

yes while the government can grumble all it wants about the higher rate of accidents in private mines it must also look at the public mines like this one that still run more accidents than the rest of the world per kg of coal.

I'm also emotional to read this kind of news, this kind of incidents are not new and happen almost every year. How could they let the same thing happened without any active imporvement? It's about the supervision method and central government's inability to enforce law to the lowest level of official hierarchy.

The worst of all is in Shaanxi province, where most of China's coal produced. It's also the place where slavery exposed last year, for the demand for coal is always on the rise.

Unless the interest chain between local officials and corrup businessmen broken, this kind of incidents will be hard to prevent. The central government seems to be impotent in this.
