On this day 30 years ago about a million people demonstrated peacefully all over China and on the Tien An Men Square in Beijing, for more freedom and the rights of workers to co-decide. The Chinese government brought in tanks and troops with automatic shotguns. In the middle of the night the army raided the camps and killed an estimate of a thousand students in their sleep. And thousands others where imprisoned in camps.

They are not forgotten.
