Description

Through pictures and video, we explore the evolution of a pro-democracy movement that began peacefully but ended in tragedy on the night of June 3-4, 1989. This book marks the 24th anniversary of the Chinese army crackdown on student demonstrators and the citizens who supported them.  The book covers historical events in China that are still tightly censored today. Radio Free Asia brings to light authentic documents showing the true nature of the popular movement in the Chinese capital which ended in a massacre on the central square on June 4th 1989. (Contains some copyrighted material)
