Tiananmen Square

It has been 20 years since the leadership of China decided it was a good idea to massacre hundreds of their unarmed citizens in and around Tiananmen Square. Do you remember the Goddess of Democracy?

The BBC has a short slide show, with audio, here.

Some very interesting pictures of an 18th anniversary Tiananmen commemoration by Hong Kong citizens are here.

Addendum: Don't expect to see visitors from China popping up to read this post, as they do for nearly any post that mentions China or anybody or anything in China. Tiananmen Square is different. Their internet filters don't allow the words.
