Hong Kong People!

nytimes.com — Overnight, my childhood home became a battleground. The Hong Kong streets where I grew up morphed into an alarming political flash point with riot police in gas masks firing tear-gas canisters at pro-democracy protesters, many of them defending themselves from the noxious white clouds with little more than umbrellas and plastic wrap.

Book Review: The People’s Republic of Amnesia: Tiananmen Revisited by Louisa Lim

blogs.lse.ac.uk — In The People's Republic of Amnesia, NPR and former BBC correspondent Louisa Lim aims to chart how the events of June 4th 1989 changed China, and how China changed the events of June 4th by rewriting its own history. Andrea Janku finds this a persuasive and fascinating read.

Tiananmen Revisited

goodreads.com — The People's Republic of Amnesia is a book looking into the incidents in 1989. I say "incidents" because Louisa Lim uncovers several events that have yet to be revealed to the public and their relation to June 4th, Chinese history and even more importantly, China's future.

chinafile.com — On June 4, 1989, People's Liberation Army soldiers opened fire on unarmed civilians in Beijing, killing untold hundreds of people. A quarter-century later, this defining event remains buried in China's modern history, successfully expunged from collective memory.

June 4: The Day That Defines, And Still Haunts China

npr.org — As China prepares to mark the 25th anniversary of its brutal repression of protests around Tiananmen Square, its leaders have presided over an unprecedented pre-anniversary crackdown. Rights groups say at least 50 people have been detained, put under house arrest or disappeared. Silence surrounds this anniversary.

China's Great Effort of Forgetting

online.wsj.com — Last July, Yu Dongyue took off on his red 10-speed bike from the Indianapolis foot spa where his sister works, and disappeared. The police were alerted since the 46-year-old Mr. Yu, who gained political asylum in the United States in 2009, is unable to look after himself.
