21年前的今天:下午我在北大塞万提斯像下草坪主持第十七次“民主沙龙”,邀请历史学者,已经逝世的包遵信先生以”纪念五四“为主题演讲,他指出“427这个日子在中华人民共和国的历史上将会大书特书,它的规模和影响都超过了五四。”并首次提出“社会上的知识分子,应当同学生结合起来。”

21 years ago today: I chaired the 17th Democracy Salon at Beijing University in the afternoon. The event was held on the lawn under the statue of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. A historian, the late Mr Bao Zunxin, was invited to give a Memorial Lecture on the May Fourth Movement. “The April 27th student protest,” according to Bao, “would be one of the most relished days in the history of the People’s Republic of China. It was larger in scale and more influential than the May Fourth Movement.” He also expressed, for the first time, his wish to see “public intellectuals joining hands with the students”.
