  • 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.

    Germany had the Holocaust, North Korea has people starving to death, and China had the Tiananmen Massacre. The US might have its issues, but I'm so glad I was born here.

    Before the entire military went in, students and workers who were controlled by western agents started to kill soldiers, please be clear that this action was done under martial law declared, as a result, these people should be considered as criminals under all circumstances, not only because they were fighting for “freedom “. Please don’t make up history. We all know that CIA were seen in Hong Kong theses days right?

      When people were being shot, of course they started fighting back, that's all that they could do. But even if we take your upside down version of events, do you think that excuses slaughtering of thousands of other peaceful protesters in other cities including? protesters of your own kind, Chinese people, like you, that had dreams and future, Chinese that fought for better China. Do you consider yourself a human being after the thing you wrote? are you really proud of yourself? Don't let someone else control your mind.

    One of my university teachers participated in the rally when he was studying in Beijing, and according to him, when he was rounded up together with other students, he was let go because he was able to show/prove that he was FILIPINO-Chinese and not a mainlander. He was deported and as for his comrades, well, he never saw them again.
