Remembrance and Resistance – 28th Anniversary of Tiananmen 記憶與抗爭 – 伦敦纪念“八九六四”二十八週年
To mark the 28th anniversary of the 1989 pro-democracy movement, a candlelit vigil will be held outside the Chinese Embassy in London on June 4th. We will highlight the stories of the citizens who were killed in the Massacre by the army of the CCP.
In recent years, there are over two dozen 1989 Movement participants who have been imprisoned in recent years, including lecturers Hu Shigen and Lü Gengsong; labour activist Liu Shaoming; students Chen Wei, Liu Xianbin and Chen Bing; Human Rights Forum initiator Chen Xi; performance activist Chen Yunfei; lawyer Xia Lin; Buddhist monk Sheng Guan (aka Xu Zhiqiang); China Democracy Party founder Chen Shuqing; writer and Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo …
The courage of the tank man has never died. It has manifested itself in the rights defending movements across China, in the struggle for freedom of the Tibetan and Uyghur peoples, in the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong.
