Tienanmen at Twenty

Twenty Years Later

On the two-decade anniversary of the Tienanmen Square massacre, the UK's Guardian talks with some of the survivors. A long, worth the time read.

The BBC gets the runaround from the government as they try to cover the anniversary.

China's getting ready, with Twitter, Hotmail, Flickr, Live, and Bing all blocked.

Also, the secret diaries of Zhao Ziyang, the Communist Party leader ousted for trying to stop it.

(Notice how the overseas press is carrying the ball on this?)
