Massacred Journalist

In June 1989 Chinese troops and tanks crushed prodemocracy demonstrations, the largest massacre occurring in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, in which perhaps 2,600 students and supporters were murdered. Here is shown a photo of one of the victims, a journalist who would be shot a few days after this picture was taken For documentation on communist China's democide and repression, see China's Bloody Century.
