Protestors to Mark the 24th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre in 1989
On Tuesday the 4th of June, 7pm-9pm, around 120 protesters gathered outside the Chinese Embassy in London to commemorate victims of the Tiananmen (Beijing) Massacre in 1989. Protesters read out the names of known victims of the massacre. This year, the vigil saw more young people joining the June Fourth commemoration. Although the Chinese regime has continued to suppress the truth about what happened 24 years ago, more and more young people have started to look for the truth.
