24 years since Tiananmen Square

While we who are outside the Great Firewall are more or less free to say whatever the hell we want about, well, whatever the hell we want, others are not so lucky. That’s why I especially admire the courage of those who commemorate the 4th of June from within China. They are often playful, slightly irreverent, and sometimes not in the best of tastes, but these little gestures of subversion are reminders that the flame still burns. Dawn will come.

Lest we forget.

P.S. Despite pessimistic voices in some papers that this year’s vigil might be cancelled because of weather, the once again attracted thousands of people.
