Wu Renhua (吳仁華), a scholar and witness to the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989
Taipei, May 25 (CNA) “The enemy is too powerful and many of us have already retreated,” Wu Renhua (吳仁華), a scholar and witness to the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989, said on the eve of its 30th anniversary.
Thirty years ago during the Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing, Wu was a young lecturer at China University of Political Science and Law and was one of the million protesters.
This made him a witness of the bloody crackdown China’s government ordered the military to carry out between June 3-4 that year, commonly known as the June Fourth Incident.
Thirty-years later, Wu still struggles with the horrors of that night, but instead of trying to forget what happened, he has spent the past three de
cades painstakingly trying to reconstruct the incident and sorting out what the facts, lies and false rumors are. [FULL STORY]
