For 30 years, Jiang Lin– a former lieutenant in #China’s army– kept silent on the horrors she saw during the #TiananmenSquareMassacre. Today, she speaks up to tell her story as an insider: nyti.ms/2JOyEMG #June4
“The pain has eaten at me for 30 years,” she said in an interview in Beijing. “Everyone who took part must speak up about what they know happened. That’s our duty to the dead, the survivors and the children of the future.” #China #June4 nyti.ms/2JOyEMG
