After three decades, Tank Man is still unknown in China.
We Chinese, who have learned the true story of Tank Man and the bloody Tiananmen Square Massacre, keep blaming its cover-up on the Chinese Communist Party.
Before 2020, tens of thousands had gathered at a candlelight vigil in Hong Kong on the night of June 4 to mark the anniversary every year since the bloody Tiananmen Square crackdown.
In contrast, we have heard nothing from the thousands and thousands of Chinese international students in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia – not even one event held to remember and honor those who died in the pro-democracy movement.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”
I refuse to be silent. To free China today, I speak up, tell you the experience of me and other Chinese.
