Readers may know of my love of China - having spent just 3 semesters there in 2008 and 2010. I have been to Tiananmen Square - not far from the awesome Forbidden City in Beijing. My friend and I stood in the huge square and remembered what had happened there in 1989, on June 4th.
Many Chinese even now know nothing about it, and those who have heard about it find it hard to believe. You cannot access any material about the massacre on Chinese internet. There is no reference to it in Chinese history books.
I still watch these videos in awe with tears streaming. There are other videos on Youtube. These two will tell you the story of what happened there, and how a government turned on its young people to show is might.
