New York exhibit memorializes the 1989 Tiananmen protests


Former student leaders of China's 1989 pro-democracy movement launched an exhibit of the Tiananmen massacre in Manhattan on Friday in a bid to keep alive the dream of freedom and democracy amid an ongoing information blackout back home. The June 4 Memorial Hall's opening was timed to mark the 34th anniversary of the massacre of unarmed civilians by People's Liberation Army troops that ended weeks of mass protests on Beijing's Tiananmen Square, which falls on Sunday.
