For those involved in the battle for human rights in China, the images of June 4th, 1989 remain vivid and heartbraking- the Tiananmen Square Massacre. Yet with China’s booming economy and rising global standing, the call for human rights in China often gets muffled as it is increasingly overshadowed by issues deemed strategically ‘more important’ to U.S. foreign policy.
For this reason, on the eve of this tragic anniversary, Laogai Research Foundation will host a commemoration and film screening in honor of the victims of Tiananmen.
Please join us at the Laogai Museum for a screening of selections from the 2006 PBS Frontline documentary, The Tank Man.
