The world watched in horror as the Chinese military ruthlessly turned its weapons on its own people who non-violently demanded reform in their government, freedom of speech, and freedom of press.
Twenty-five years after the massacre, the Chinese government still refuses to take accountability for its actions. Chinese citizens continue to demand the rule of law, freedom of expression, and other basic human rights in their country.
