[Child protestors] 13 children stand in a line in downtown Dali in Yunnan Province on Aug 14, 2012, holding posters demanding immediate payment for their parents. Their ages range from 5 to 20. All of them held in their hands a hand-written sign demanding money to pay for their tuitions. Their parents worked for a construction project six years ago at South City, a shopping and recreation center for tourists coming to Dali, whose developer still owes more than 1,000 migrant workers a total sum of 20 million yuan (roughly US$ 3 million).
