What Happened In Tiananmen Square In 1989?

In the Spring of 1989, the Chinese people came together in Tiananmen Square and in cities across China to demand an end to corruption and a start at democratic reform. In the early hours of June 4th, the Chinese Communist Party responded by sending in the People’s Liberation Army to enact a military crackdown and a massacre.

Today, the CCP has banned any mention of what happened that day. But the people of China and the world cannot forget the Party’s decision to murder peaceful and unarmed protesters, many of them students.
