Tiananmen Square Massacre (1989)

  • čas přidán 19. 07. 2019
  • Tiananmen Square, in the heart of the Chinese capital Beijing, has been a place of enormous significance in modern Chinese history.
    For seven weeks in the spring and early summer of 1989, it was the focus of unparalleled protests by students and workers against the political and economic system, leading to a brutal government crackdown and international condemnation of the communist regime.

      While students stayed at the Square, Wuerkaixi and Cailin fled to HK. Cailin had a famous interview saying he want bloodshed but she doesn’t want to die( do you own search on CHclip if you care about truth). While students were on hunger strike, Wuerkaixi was caught on video eating in a big restaurant with his friends. Later after he fled to HK he complained that the government put a student having dinner on national TV. Everybody can tell the point yet he neither can deny the fact nor facing the truth.

    I came to the comment section to see how many unoriginal Chinese censorship jokes there are, which there is a decent amount, but I was pleasantly surprised the amount of well educated and funny Anti communist China comments there are, and how they came up with good rebuttals to people who blindly stand for tyranny.

      If yes.. it's a massacare in tiannanmen square! There was a protest. And for a democratic goverment. Or liberal goverment. Huge protest got on. Then the goverment got furious and shot the students and workers who were protesting (nearly 300k people were protesting) then they shot live round at them in tiannanmen square and then some journalist in China shot the footage and then BOOM they took all footage they can down and kinda failed with that. And now they are blocking all of it! China is a liar not BBC! All hail democracy!

    FAKE NEWS! There is no proof of any of this happening, according to Google, Facebook, and Twitter. Anyone who says anything positive about democracy, liberty, freedom of speech, and individual rights, or has anything negative to say about the GLORIOUS People's Republic of China, do not exist on Google, Facebook, and Twitter. Only the TRUE FACTS (approved by Antifa) are available on Big Tech websites.

    I have reported this video for FAKE NEWS and SPAM and ABUSE against the glorious leaders of China.

    Don't know why CHclip care about Chinese people's freedom more than the Chinese… There are a lot more dark history of PRC, and we actually all know. We don't usually talk about it because we fell shame of some of the things. Just like in America people don't talk about how they abused the native and the slaves. I see many people believe Chinese can't see these things from CHclip, but they can. Everyone know how to use a VPN my friends… I mean the Chinese government have done a great job currently, so at least myself don't really want to bother the old issues. Feel sad about the deaths, rest in peace.
