Tiananmen Square Massacre
|The Tiananmen Square peaceful pro-democracy protests in 1989, and the subsequent brutal crushing of the movement by the Chinese government on June 4, remain one of the key moments in China’s modern history. On the 33rd anniversary of the protests and crackdown, we honor the memory and legacy of the brave individuals who lost their lives advocating for freedom as a result of the Tiananmen Square Massacre.|
|On Friday, June 3 at 8:00 pm EDT, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation will hold a solemn candlelight vigil ceremony in remembrance of the thousands killed by Chinese troops in the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre.We invite you to join us to honor the memory of those savagely gunned down by China’s communist government and to hear first-hand from brave survivors of the Tiananmen Square Massacre.
We will gather with special guest speakers at the site of the Victims of Communism Memorial with its recreated “Goddess of Democracy” statue dedicated to the millions of men, women, and children who died under communist regimes. Chinese students erected the original statue in Tiananmen Square in 1989 during protests against the communist regime in Beijing. Reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty, the Victims of Communism Memorial is a symbol of freedom and individual rights.
