21年前的今天:戒严第二天,军队仍被堵在城外。广场上聚集了多达一百万的市民。全国人大厉以宁、江平、刘延东、胡绩伟等五十七名常委联名,要求召开紧急会议。叶飞、张爱萍、萧克、杨得志、陈再道、李聚奎等七位将军致信邓小平,呼吁军队“绝对不能向人民开枪”。香港百万人上街游行。

Wang Dan writes on 21 May 2010:

21 years ago today: it was the second day after martial law was declared. The troops were blocked from entering the city. Up to a million people gathered at the Square. 57 members of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, including Li Yining, Jiang Ping, Liu Yandong, Hu Jiwei and others requested an urgent meeting. Seven generals from the People’s Liberation Army, including Ye Fei, Zhang Aiping, Xiao Ke, Yang Dezhi, Chen Zaidao and Li Jukui, made an appeal to Deng Xiaoping in a letter, urging the troop “to refrain from opening fire at the people”. Millions of Hong Kong people took to the street.
