Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989


June 5, 1989.  I remember watching this on TV.  

Students held a sit-in at Tiananmen Square.  Peaceful, yet doomed from the very beginning.  Troops opened fire and quelled the protest.

China in 1989 was a Communist realm.
China in 2019 is a Communist realm.

Events like this seem impossible today.  Unfortunately, repeat situations are just a mouse-click away.

Remember Tank Man.
