Wang Dan writes on 2 May 2010:

21 year ago today: in the afternoon, a team of more than 70 delegates from 40 or so universities, led by Wang Chaohua, Zheng Xuguang and I, arrived at the Office of the National People’s Congress and the State Council to submit a petition that was adopted yesterday.  That evening, Yuan Mu appeared on television, accusing us of under the control of a “black-hand” from backstage.  He consequently refused to accept the demands in the petition.  It was obvious at this stage that nothing could have stopped the May Fourth demonstration from going ahead.
