Wang Dan: 21 years ago today, 29 May 1989



Wang Dan writes on 29 May 2010:

21 years ago today: The Independent University Student Union decided to launch a “campus evacuation campaign” as a means of taking the democratic movement to a national level. In Beijing, three of the leaders of the Beijing Autonomous Workers’ Federation were secretly arrested. The Federation of all Social Sectors in the Capital had to keep changing meeting venues, first to the Cultural Academy, then to Beijing University. I left the Square to return to Beijing University to chair the meetings.
