21年前的今天:在人大对面的一家小饭馆,开希、少方、我、程真、王文、杨朝晖等7人讨论决定在各校发起绝食。我们当时认为,当局是想用拖的办法瓦解学运,我们只有进一步施加压力,才能使得学运不会半途而废。当时我们都很希望这次学生运动能在中国政治进步的方面取得具体成果。

21 years ago today: Seven of us, Wu’er Kaixi, Ma Shaofang, I, Cheng Zhen, Wang Wen and Yang Zhaohui, had a discussion at an eatery opposite to the National People’s Congress. We decided to launch a hunger strike in all universities. We believed at the time that the authorities were using a delay tactic in order to demolish the student movement.  Hence there was a need to step up pressure to ensure that the movement would not suffer a premature death. We all hoped that this movement would help improve the political situation in China.
