Wang Dan: 21 years ago today, 14 May 1989

dd4bv3nb_55c9htbp 王丹写于2010514日:

21年前的今天:凌晨,陈希同、李铁映等到广场上,试图劝退学生未果。白天,全市高校总动员,到广场声援。绝食团开始组织纠察队。晚上,统战部长阎明复邀请绝食学生代表到统战部,我代表绝食团参加。王军涛等知识界代表也与会,据说是阎明复委托他们出来在政府与学生间斡旋。

21 years ago today: Before dawn, Chen Xitong, Li Tieying and others arrived at Tiananmen Square. They attempted, without success, to urge the students to disperse and leave. At dawn, all universities in Beijing mobilised their students to arrive at the Square to express solidarity and support. The hunger strikers started to organise pickets. In the evening, Yan Mingfu, the Head of the United Front Work Department, invited student representatives of the hunger strikers to meet with him at the United Front Work Headquarter. I represented the hunger strikers to attend. Wang Juntao and other intellectuals had also participated in the meeting. Some said that Yan Mingfu had invited them to come along and act as mediators.
