China's Ruling Party Continues To Censor Memories Of Tiananmen Protests

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

The Chinese government is trying to suppress any online discussion of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests on their 24th anniversary. This has prompted some people to attempt to distribute photos reminding people of the event. One image being censored refers to the iconic photo of a man standing before an advancing column of tanks, in the censored image, however, he stands before a column of rubber ducks.
