Tiananmen Square 30 years on

Aside from some Guardian articles and a BBC4 documentary there seems to be very little coverage of this. Seems like the policy of silence and shutting up the opposition will win.

I'd hoped our own government, given the prominence of this week's events, would have made a stronger representation.

Tbf there are still plenty of massacres from Empire days which our country hasn't been held to account properly for yet either. Glass houses and all that.

Sure. Bloody Sunday, Mau Mau uprising, Chagos Islanders, are all getting their transparency, but very very slowly. There are many other events which probably still need closure.

The state enforced silence of this though is a lot more sinister.

30 years ago i remember calling the Chinese embassy to hurl abuse down the line. I don't think the feckers even picked up the phone.
