21 Years Ago
An illustration published by Southern Metropolitan, an influential newspaper 3 days before the anniversary. The author is Xiangma, a column cartoonist of the paper.
Some people argued the biggest lost of the Tian'anmen Massacre was the entire generation of those born in the 1970s. Elder generations were not impacted as bad because they had gone through many, such as the Great Cultural Revolution. Younger generations simply did not know, thanks to the brainwashing by the communist Party.
Among the 1970s population, they were exhausted and desperate. Some went oversea to hide themselves away. Some retreat to a life style with no moral value, but money value.
However, every year this time, some people still try to remind the world. There was a massacre happened when government used tanks and machine guns to kill hundreds of peaceful protesting students in the heart of the capital city, Beijing.
