Asia in Review

Tens of thousands of people attend a candlelight vigil at Victoria Park in Hong Kong, Saturday, June 4, 2016 to commemorate victims of the 1989 military crackdown in Beijing. China’s bloody crackdown on the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests was a pivotal moment in the country’s political development. Despite the Communist Party’s efforts to erase memories of the event, every year its anniversary triggers heightened security and surveillance on the mainland, along with furtive commemorations by a handful of activists.
