31 years ago on June 4th a group primarily made up of university students staged a peaceful protest demanding democracy. The response Chinas government gave was to declare martial law and send military troops, opening fire and killing both protesters and bystanders. The death toll is unknown due to the taboo nature and censorship surrounding the incident, but estimates range from several hundred to several thousand.

This year may also be the last year Hong Kong is allowed to acknowledge the event. Every year Hong Kong and Macau are allowed a vigil to commemorate what happened. However, this year, given the situation with China, it is likely the event will be banned in the future. This year the government claimed the vigil wasn't allowed due to coronavirus worries. However, given the new measures, such as making it illegal to talk negatively of the national anthem, it is likely that there are less considerate reasons behind it.

This event may have happened years ago, but it is important not to forget what occurred. Things are bad around the world, and especially in the US right now. However, we must not forget that while protesting can be dangerous, we need to protest if we feel like our rights are being stripped away. Censorship exists everywhere, which is why we need to keep the memories of these important events alive and spread the story. And most importantly, we shouldn't forget those people who's lives were unfairly ended, whether they were protesting, bystanders, or people who saw what was happening and tried to help.

Hopefully, one day all of China can recognize their bravery in the fight for democracy

Tiananmen square should be remembered as the voices that were silenced in most brutal inhumane way. Let's pray that no goverment will do it again.

They have not changed.
Hong Kong has crystallized this in my mind thus i no longer support ccp artists or acts.
What ever change was thought to have happened is an illusion.
Too bad as i do love Vic and Aojuan.

as of yet.
The hope was that HK and the financial markets would pull them closer, but 2 decades later we can clearly see this is not true.

I find it funny that Nixon is universally reviled yet folks still think opening china was a good idea.

The RoC is the reason there is a South Korea and the Kims do not rule the whole country.
Yet they are international non entities.
This needs to change.

No matter how big and powerful the Chinese regime may have become, they just can't silence everyone forever. One day they'll have to answer for all their crimes.
