what she called the Tiananmen Square Incident — also called the June Fourth Incident — of June 4, 1989 with an open mind, and said Taiwan is willing to share with China its experiences in democracy transformation.

Tsai made the call in a Facebook post on Sunday, the day peaceful protesters were killed during a government crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in Tiananmen Square in Beijing 28 years ago.

On that day, “a group of students and citizens challenged the reality of mainland China,” Tsai wrote, saying that their action enlightened a whole generation.
