The parents who lost their children at Juyuan Middle School say they have yet to hear from Dujiangyan officials. A few said they had been approached by teachers and told that they would be well compensated for their loss — about $4,500 per child, several times the average annual income in this area — if they would stop their increasingly vociferous public campaign.
“We don’t want their money,” said Mr. Luo, the farmer, as others nodded in agreement. “We just want this corruption to end.” Many parents said they felt insulted that no one from the school or the government had come to offer condolences.
Vociferous people express their opinions and complaints loudly and repeatedly in speech, and vociferous demands, etc. are made repeatedly and loudly:
Local activist groups have become increasingly vociferous as the volume of traffic passing through the village has grown.
A vociferous opponent of gay rights, he is well-known for his right-wing views.
