Today marks the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre of Chinese citizens who had gathered at Tiananmen Square to protest government policies. The New York Times‘ Nicholas Kristof was there and recalls his memories of the event in today’s paper (“The Turning Point That Wasn’t”). I highly recommend watching Krisof’s video and his interview with Natalie Kitroeff. There is also another great article on the topic in today’s The New York Times (“Tiananmen Square: Forgotten”). This article explains how the event has been largely forgotten in China.
