June 4, 1989 went down into the annals of history with a grim tale! The day witnessed perhaps the most violent condemnation of free speech and peaceful intent, ever! 7000 innocent unarmed students and demonstrators lost their lives in what came to be known as the Tiananmen Square massacre! This post pays homage to all those who lost their lives at the instance of cruel communist mercenaries who continue to wreck havoc in Tibet.
The following picture which became iconic of Tiananmen, reflects the power of one! Click here to see the video of this spectacular show of strength!
I have included some very interesting links in the Footnotes section that outline the facts concerning the massacre. A large part of substantiated facts come from declassified cables sent by the US Embassy in Beijing to the State Department in Washington.
