The 25th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre

On Wednesday the 4th of June, 7pm-9pm, over 100 protestors gathered outside the Chinese Embassy in London to  commemorate victims of the Tiananmen Massacre (Beijing Massacre) in 1989. Protestors read out the names of known victims of the massacre, and mark their names on a street map of Beijing showing the places where most of these victims were killed or the hospitals to which their bodies were taken.
