Thirty-Fifth of May

Goddess of Democracy: a symbol for the struggle for human rights, freedom, justice for the victims of the June 4, 1989 massacre, and of course, democracy in China
You won't be able to find anything on the internet if you are in China using the search phrase "Tiananmen Square Massacre" or even "4th of June" or "89.6.4".

So people have skirted around this by referring to the event as "Thirty-Fifth of May" on their websites. However, the giant Chinese Communist State Censorship Apparatus got wind of that too.

But no matter how hard the Chinese Communist Party tries to suppress, with force or threats or bribery, the people will never forget.  Every year Man Yung remembers, with much sorrow.
