Do you hear the people sing?
From the musical movie Les Misérables
On the night of June 3, 1989, Tiananmen Square Massacre happened and lasted for days. Although some details remains controversial, there is no doubt of the heinous crime committed by the Chinese government. 24 years later, there are basically two kinds of Chinese: who don’t know or don’t care, and those who never forget.
In the past 24 years, numerous successful and unsuccessful flights for freedom took place, the most recent one being the protests in Turkey. Human beings have been studying the balance between government and people for millenniums. Those trial and errors make up the glorious history of defiance.
In China, like in many of the 1984 countries, questioning the Big Brother is dangerous. While enjoying the benefits from modern technology, the Chinese government created the largest censorship system probably in human history. Under this system, you can almost never find any information about this incident on the Internet. Some key words and visual contents are censored, however people have come up with creative means to remember this incident, way more than those in the link. The power of a single individual is only a dim of glow, but when it adds up it is capable of burning down any superpower. There are people who never lose hope for 24 years.
