Twenty years ago today the Chinese communist government murdered untold numbers of pro-democracy demonstrators in Tiananmen Square. Wall Street Journal columnist Claudia Rosett, who was at the protests, remembers.
That summer, after my junior year of high school, included a family trip to Washington, D.C. There, on July 4, I purchased a T-shirt from some Chinese students which called for the arrest of Deng Xiaoping for murder.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years and China is still not free.
