Scenes from Occupy Hong Kong’s Last Stand

newyorker.com — On Thursday, an argument over confetti briefly convulsed a small corner of the encampment set up by Occupy Hong Kong protesters in Hong Kong's Admiralty district. Tiny silver hexagons carpeted the tarmac between colorful tents that demonstrators had pitched on one of the city's key expressways, and some people were accusing those scattering the glitter of trivializing a serious political struggle.

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.

‘Staying’-An Excerpt from ‘People’s Republic of Amnesia’

chinafile.com — Zhang Ming has become used to his appearance startling small children. Skeletally thin, with cheeks sunk deep into his face, he walked gingerly across the cream-colored hotel lobby as if his limbs were made of glass. On his forehead were two large, perfectly circular purple-red bruises, one above each eye.

The People’s Republic of Amnesia

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.
