A Chinese man wears a face mask with the word "No to Kunming PX," paraxylene, written on, takes part in a protest against a planned refinery project in downtown Kunming in southwest China's Yunnan province Saturday, May 4, 2013. After word spread about an environmental protest that was planned for Saturday in the central Chinese city of Chengdu, drugstores and printing shops were ordered to report anyone making certain purchases. Microbloggers say government fliers urged people not to demonstrate, and schools were told to stay open to keep students on campus. Meanwhile, hundreds of people - many wearing mouth masks - gathered in Kunming to protest a planned refinery project in the area. The demonstrators demanded information transparency and that public health be safeguarded. (AP Photo) CHINA OUT
