21年前的今天:全国人大常委会委员长万里从美国返回后没有回北京,在上海发表书面讲话,表示拥护中央政治局常委会的重要决定。晚上七时,广场指挥部召开中外记者会,会上,我代表“首都各界爱国维宪联席会议”建议学生在5月30日结束静坐,撤离天安们广场。该建议被广场指挥部否决。

21 years ago today: Wan Li, the Chairman of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, returned from a visit to the US. Instead of going straight back to Beijing, he stopped over at Shanghai where he made a written statement to vow his support for important decisions made by the Politburo Standing Committee. At seven o’clock that night, the Command Headquarter at Tiananmen Square called a press conference for domestic and international media. During the conference, I made a suggestion to the students on behalf of the FASSC (Federation of all Social Sectors in the Capital). I urged them to end the peaceful sit-in on May 30th and withdraw from Tiananmen Square. The proposal was vetoed by the Command Headquarter.
