TANK MAN

Posted on: June 5, 2009

Today is the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing, when university students demonstrated against China’s political corruption and authoritarianism. The Chinese military cracked down with force. Photographs of the “Tank Man,” a lone guy with shopping bags who stood in the way of an advancing line of tanks, became the symbol of the protests for the rest of the world (it’s largely unfamiliar to Chinese, because it’s been censored).

The video is in Chinese, so turn down the volume and just feel it…
