"In this primary school in Beichuan, in Sichuan province, the students wear the uniform of the Chinese Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army, as the armed wing of the Communist Party was known during China’s two civil wars, the Long March and the second Sino-Japanese war," writes AFP photographer Fred Dufour. "The children look like a little regiment of the revolutionary force. The military-style uniform is an exception in 21st-century China. And for a photographer, it’s a goldmine."
