30 years ago today, the red army opened fire on civilians protesting the CPC in Tiananmen Square

Documentary by ABC's Four Corners on the Tiananmen Square protests and the massacre of the protestors at the hands of the red army.

Students singing the Internationale in mandarin gives me chills

China Daily was the newspaper that Deng Xiaoping used to brand the protestors 'enemies of the state'

@GreenandBlack I remember following the protests on the TV news. All the Soviet satellites were having their revolutions and everyone thought China might go the same way, for a while :-/
