China blacks out coverage of 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Square

posted by Randall

Tiananmen SquareUSA Today reports that tight security around Tiananmen Square today along with months long crackdown on dissidents are preventing any public commemoration of that historic day.

That’s quite different than in Hong Kong where 100,000 people are expected to attend a public commemoration.

It was on June 4, 1989 when the Chinese army moved in to bring down democratic protestors who had gathered in the Square. It’s believed thousands died in the rioting.

Here in the United States, George Takei put the thoughts of many into words.
