PEOPLE WITHOUT FREE SPEECH

The man, calling for an end to the recent violence and bloodshed against pro-democracy demonstrators, was pulled away by bystanders, and the tanks continued on their way.
The Chinese government crushed a student-led demonstration for democratic reform and against government corruption, killing hundreds, or perhaps thousands of demonstrators in the strongest anti-government protest since the 1949 revolution.
Ironically, the name Tiananmen means “Gate of Heavenly Peace“. (AP Photo/Jeff Widener)
