Tiananmen Square Massacre (1989)

  • Published on Jul 19, 2019
  • Tiananmen Square, in the heart of the Chinese capital Beijing, has been a place of enormous significance in modern Chinese history.
    For seven weeks in the spring and early summer of 1989, it was the focus of unparalleled protests by students and workers against the political and economic system, leading to a brutal government crackdown and international condemnation of the communist regime.

      Maybe it'd be better for you to keep focus on other historical incidents that less ideological.

      Liu Xiaobo had said there was no killing at Tianan men square, so could you please just STFU and tell everybody truth? There's also a video filmed by Spanish team which showed students dismissed and walked out mildly. So who's the liar?

    we might see another tianmen square massacre at this rate in Hong Kong. commie's cant back down, and they cant go in with military force, knowing them they'd most likely go with the 2nd option anyway.

      @totallyfrozen hmm, I see your point there. I suppose I had the assumption in mind that rights are never infringed upon, which is obviously not always true.

      How do you secure a 1st Amendment right without a 2nd Amendment right?
      I think that without the power to resist tyranny, any freedom and votes are simply offered at the courtesy of the government. Then they aren’t guarantees rights, but more like benefits. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I just want to remind everyone that the reason it's hard to get a count of the fatalities is because the CCP had the bodies crushed into mush by tanks, then burnt with flamethrowers, and finally washed down the sewers with fire hoses.
