Wang Dan: 21 Years Ago Today, 2 May 1989

21年前的今天:下午与王超华,郑绪光率北京40多所高校的70多名代表,到全国人大和国务院的办公厅递交昨天的请愿书。晚上,袁木上电视回应,指责我们背后有黑手,拒绝接受请愿书提出的要求。五四大游行已经箭在弦上。

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.
