NEWS – Pro-Beijing Group to Rally in SUPPORT of Tiananmen Massacre 5

Meanwhile, committee member Roxy Yuen Lok- sze stated that: “…no one died in Tiananmen Square, but in other places.” Ko told the blog that this was not his opinion but he’s seen data that shows there were no deaths in the square, only in surrounding areas.

It’s satire, morons.

Admitting that transparency and full accountability for the Party’s wrongdoings were long overdue, he promised to set up a 50 million renminbi ‘Tiananmen Victims Fund’ to fully compensate survivors and families of the dead. A full inquiry will be held with dozens of political prisoners – some held for over two decades – set to be released with immediate effect.

After a quarter of a century, Xi claimed that it was time China’s leaders faced up to the bloody history it had spent years trying to suppress and re-write. He said that it was time for reconciliation and an opportunity for the Chinese leadership to win some legitimacy and respect on the world stage. Xi vindicated the students, workers and intellectuals who filled Tiananmen Square on June 4th, 1989, declaring that their actions spurred China’s ‘economic miracle’, as it encouraged government to move away from trying to control its populace and instead focus on building an economically open and prosperous society.
