CHINA-BEIJING SPRING-REPRESSION

Chinese citizens and students of Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province, hurl stones at troop on June 4, 1989 during a rioting following the proclamation of the martial in the city. A series of pro-democracy protests was sparked by the April 15 death of former communist party leader Hu Yaobang. In a show of force, China leaders vented their fury and frustration on student dissidents and their pro-democracy supporters. Several hundred people have been killed and thousands wounded when soldiers moved on Tiananmen Square during a violent military crackdown ending six weeks of student demonstrations, known as the Beijing Spring movement. According to Amnesty International, five years after the crushing of the Chinese pro-democracy movement, "thousands" of prisoners remained in jail.
