In 1989, hundreds of thousands of people flooded onto the streets of Beijing and into Tiananmen Square demanding democracy, freedom of speech and an end to corruption. After a seven week standoff, the government called in the troops and a bloody battle ensued. The number of deaths is not known. The Chinese Red Cross initially issued a statement saying that 2,600 people had been killed but rapidly retracted that. The Chinese government claimed that 241 people died, including 23 soldiers.

Dr. Yang Jianli, a Tiananmen Massacre survivor, will tell you, through the story of the Tank Man and his own experience in the massacre, that those who stand opposite us are not necessarily our enemies and that anyone one including those in the “wrong” camps has his or her moment to become a hero. There are always tank men all around us. Dr. Yang Jianli is a scholar and human rights activist internationally recognized for his efforts to promote democracy in China. He has been involved in the Chinese democracy movement since the 1980s. He participated in the 1989 Tiananmen protests and co-authored the Constitution of a Federal Democratic China. Dr. Yang returned to China to support the labor movement and was imprisoned for 5 years. Following his release and his subsequent return to the U.S., Dr. Yang founded Initiatives for China, also known as Citizen Power, an organization promoting China’s peaceful transition to democracy. In March, 2010 Dr. Yang co-chaired the Committee on Internet Freedom at the Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy. In December 2011, Dr. Yang, joined H.H. Dalai Lama and four other delegates, to attend Forum 2000 hosted by former Czech president, Vaclav Havel. Dr.Yang, founder and organizer of China's many major citizen initiatives, is a recipient of numerous international human rights awards including the Truman-Reagan Medal of Freedom, Harvard Kennedy School Alumni Achievement Award and Morris Abram Human Rights Award.

The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, commonly known as the June Fourth Incident (六四事件) or more accurately '89 Democracy Movement (八九民运) in Chinese, were student-led popular demonstrations in Beijing which took place in the spring of 1989 and received broad support from city residents, exposing deep splits within China's political leadership. The protests were forcibly suppressed by hardline leaders who ordered the military to enforce martial law in the country's capital. The crackdown that initiated on June 3--4 became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre or the June 4 Massacre as troops with assault rifles and tanks inflicted casualties on unarmed civilians trying to block the military's advance towards Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, which student demonstrators had occupied for seven weeks. The scale of military mobilization and the resulting bloodshed were unprecedented in the history of Beijing, a city with a rich tradition of popular protests in the 20th century. The Chinese government condemned the protests as a "counter-revolutionary riot", and has prohibited all forms of discussion or remembrance of the events since. Due to the lack of information from China, many aspects of the events remain unknown or unconfirmed. Estimates of the death toll range from a few hundred to the thousands. The protests were triggered in April 1989 by the death of former Communist Party General Secretary, Hu Yaobang, a liberal reformer, who was deposed after losing a power struggle with hardliners over the direction of political and economic reform. University students marched and gathered in Tiananmen Square to mourn. Hu had also voiced grievances against inflation, limited career prospects, and corruption of the party elite. The protesters called for government accountability, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and the restoration of workers' control over industry. At the height of the protests, about a million people assembled in the Square. The government initially took a conciliatory stance toward the protesters. The student-led hunger strike galvanized support for the demonstrators around the country and the protests spread to 400 cities by mid-May. Ultimately, China's paramount leader Deng Xiaoping and other party elders resolved to use force. Party authorities declared martial law on May 20, and mobilized as many as 300,000 troops to Beijing. In the aftermath of the crackdown, the government conducted widespread arrests of protesters and their supporters, cracked down on other protests around China, expelled foreign journalists and strictly controlled coverage of the events in the domestic press. The police and internal security forces were strengthened. Officials deemed sympathetic to the protests were demoted or purged. Zhao Ziyang was ousted in a party leadership reshuffle and replaced with Jiang Zemin. Political reforms were largely halted and economic reforms did not resume until Deng Xiaoping's 1992 southern tour. The Chinese government was widely condemned internationally for the use of force against the protesters. Western governments imposed economic sanctions and arms embargoes.

This segment in the Assignment:China series focuses on the coverage by American news organizations of the dramatic events in Beijing in 1989. Students marched in cities all over China, but it was the demonstrations in China's symbolic center, Tiananmen Square, that captured the attention and imagination of people worldwide and especially in the United States. When Hu Yaobang died on April 15, students seized on the opportunity to remember him and to criticize his successors. Chinese leaders were divided on how to handle the protests that ensued. What followed was an extraordinary seven weeks where large numbers of Chinese in dozens of cities marched and demonstrated to express their grievances and to call for change. As the political center of China, most of the world's attention was focused on the protests there. The American press corps in China had grown since the first journalists arrived with the establishment of diplomatic relations, but it was still relatively small compared to today. Covering China remained (and remains) complicated and difficult. In December 1986, for example, two television crews were detained and had their videotape confiscated as they attempted to cover student demonstrations. This segment of Assignment:China focuses on the stories of journalists who struggled to understand what was happening in Beijing that spring and to help Americans get a sense of the issues and forces at play. We hear from them about the political, cultural, physical, and technological challenges of covering the demonstrations, how they were being seen by the larger society, and the response of the party-state. The press corps grew as the protests continued, especially as the mid-May Soviet Union-China summit meeting drew near. The upcoming meeting between Mikhail Gorbachev and his Chinese counterparts would be the first meeting between the leaders of the Communist giants in three decades. Gorbachev, of course, had made headlines worldwide with his perestroika (restructuring) and glasnost (openness) reforms. Assignment:China "Tiananmen Square" shows how Gorbachev's arrival and his departure affected the ability of television networks to broadcast news via satellite directly from the square and how reporters used early mobile phones to report from China. But we also learn how essential less-cutting edge technology, such as bicycles, was as well. For the participants, for the correspondents, and for audiences, an overriding question from April to June 3 was "how will this end?" For many outside China, the ending is most of what is remembered. The documentary shows how journalists sought to make sense of the party-state's restraint and why the April 26 People's Daily labelling the unrest as "a grave political struggle facing the whole Party and the people of all nationalities" nor the declaration of martial law on May 20 did not end the protests. When the armored personnel carriers and tanks did roll and armed soldiers were sent in, several of the journalists interviewed in Assignment:China were there. We hear how they sought to document the extent of the violence and we learn the story behind the "tank man" image that has come to symbolize the demonstrations and their violent end. We learn how journalists knew what they reported, but also how their values, expectations, or sources caused them to overemphasize some things and to miss others. And we hear from U.S. Secretary of State James Baker how the immediacy of the coverage meant that the administration needed to react in real time. Twenty-five years have passed since students and others waved banners calling for greater freedom and official accountability in Tiananmen Square. The patriotism and optimism of the demonstrators and the violence that ended the demonstrations deeply moved people worldwide. Those seven weeks have had a profound influence on what Americans and others think about China. Assignment:China -- Tiananmen Square tells how those stories were brought to American audiences.

Hi guys, In today's China in the News, we're going to look at a major event that happened 24 years ago today. It's commonly called Liu Si [六四 Liù sì 6/4] which means Six Four -- or June 4th, 1989. That is when the Chinese Communist Party decided to send in its military, the People's Liberation Army or Jie Fang Jun, [解放軍 Jiě fàng jūn People's Liberation Army] to crush a massive protest by student demonstrators at Tiananmen Square, or Tian An Men Guangchang [天安門廣場 Tiān'ānmén guǎngchǎng]. Now, officially, the Chinese regime has denied it did anything of that sort. And that the students, Xue Sheng [學生 Xué shēng students], who were calling for things like democracy, or Min Zhu [民主 Mín zhǔ Democracy], were part of a Counterrevolutionary Riot. But of course, numerous photos and pictures exist from that day showing that the military rolled into Tian An Men Guangchang, with Tanks, or Tang Ke [坦克 tǎnkè Tank], in a bid to remove the student protestors. Images like these are why some also refer to Liu Si as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, or Tian An Men Tu Sha [天安門屠殺 Tiān'ānmén túshā Tiananmen Square Massacre]. It's unclear just how many people died, but estimates range from hundreds to up to three thousand. But you know, often times, if you ask a mainland Chinese person, especially someone who grew up after 1989, about Liu Si, they will either not know what you're talking about, or just try to dodge that topic. That' because the Chinese Communist Party has put in place a heavy censorship about Liu Si, and bans discussion of what happened on Tian An Men Guangchang that day. In Fact, a senior military official claimed several years after the Tian An Men Tu Sha that no civilians were killed at Tian An Men Guangchang in 1989. Try telling that to this group of mothers who lost their sons and daughters during the Tu Sha. They are still calling on the government to release the details of exactly what happened that day. But for China's leaders, it's still not something they want people to talk about. That's it for this China in The News, if you are interested in human rights in China, you may want to see a new movie premiering in New York this week. "Free China: The courage to believe" follows the stories of two former Chinese prisoners of conscience and their journeys to freedom.
