Twentieth Anniversary of Tiananmen Square

VOAVideo: Tiananmen Mother Still Grieves for her Lost Son

When Chinese troops brutally suppressed demonstrations that had been growing on Beijing's Tiananmen Square in 1989, hundreds of people were killed. As the 20th anniversary of the June Fourth demonstration approaches, one mother still clearly remembers her son's death and is calling on the Chinese government to reassess its officially upheld verdict, that the demonstrations were counter-revolutionary. Stephanie Ho reports from Beijing.

Teacher Jennifer's commentary: I am re-posting the VOAVideo Tiananmen Mother Still Grieves for her Lost Son to honor the brave Chinese citizens who work day and night to promote Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Assembly, and the Rights to Petition the Government for the Redress
of Grievances within China.

I also honor the Government of China which has worked steadily for the past twenty years to extend Prosperity and Basic Human Rights to all of her citizens.

It is my deepest wish that the people and governments of the United States and China work together to share the fruits of their labor with all people everywhere!
