Students Video the China Quake

The YouTube summary for this video clip says it was filmed by a student at Sichuan University, in Chengdu, during China's May 12 earthquake.

The 3,500 comments are peppered with arguments about the Chinese government and the question of outsider aid. One person writes: "why do you blame the innocent victims for wat the government does?i know other countries out there arent getting ALL the help they need but right now people are being buried and need to be found in less than a week."
