Where Chinese not barbaric when #TiananmenMassacre happened in June 1989 with Government crackdown on university students demanding economic and political reform ? Did #HuYaobang the General Secretary, Chinese Communist Party not become victim to the #CCP barbarism ?

Remember Chinese leadership did not allow the student unrest then go unpunished unmindful of repercussions and public perceptions. China has “grown” since then into a behemoth monster, a global power in all matters and is recognised by the other world powers too.

Will be unwise to give ears to the Chinese propaganda well seeded and manicured to mislead the world. Did US succeed, no. Nor will Russia permit other countries to browbeat China or undermine Communist China’s emergence as a Superpower. Russian displeasure cosmetic.

Over the last two weeks, #HongKong government shifted the focus of their crackdown to @hka8964, as three leaders of the org were charged with inciting subversion. Simultaneously, some activists were trying to memories of the #TiananmenMassacre. My latest:…
On Wednesday, a court in Hong Kong handed nine activists and former lawmakers a prison sentence of up to ten months over their participation in last year’s banned Tiananmen Square vigil, saying they have taken part in an unauthorized assembly
The Hong Kong Alliance had previously refused to comply when the city’s police demanded they hand over financial records and detailed information about its members, citing the National Security Law (NSL).

#China's Young People 'Know Little' of 1989 #TiananmenMassacre

The #Chinese Communist Party has successfully silenced any public discussion of the protest movement & the bloody crackdown

2/ As the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) clamps down on dissidents ahead of Friday's anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre, younger people living in mainland China are largely unaware of the momentous events of the spring of 1989.
3/ Public memorials for the victims are banned, and any references to the People's Liberation Army (PLA)'s bloody suppression of the student-led protest movement are quickly deleted from the country's tightly controlled internet.

2/ First waves of troops went in unarmed to disperse the protesters. Then “The 27 Army APCs opened fire on the crowd before running over them. APCs ran over troops & civilians at 65kmh.” “Students were given one hour to leave square, but after five minutes, the APCs attacked.
3/ “Students linked arms but were mown down. APCs then ran over the bodies time and time again to make, quote ‘pie’ unquote, and remains collected by bulldozer. “The Remains were incinerated and then hosed down into the drains.”

Thread: #TiananmenSquaremassacre Victim: The #CCP Hasn’t Changed

”Why was there an order to start killing?” Fang Zheng asked.

"The only thing that has changed today is the methods the #CCP uses to control people"

2/ ”Why was there an order to start killing?” Fang Zheng asked. His simple query, among many other questions, has been unanswered for 3 decades. But Zheng—a victim turned activist whose legs were run over by a tank during the Tiananmen Massacre, is still fighting for the truth.
3/ The bloodbath, carried out by orders from the Communist Party (CCP), took the lives of throngs of Chinese students protesting for democratic reform on June 4, 1989. The regime continued to deny any involvement, & online searches of the incident are censored inside China.

The June Fourth Museum in #HongKong, which is affiliated under @hka8964, reportedly received a warning from government officials that the venue didn't have the proper license to hold exhibitions. The alliance said the move may be politically…
#HongKong government's Food and Environmental Hygiene Department claimed that they received a complaint that the venue didn't have a license to operate so they went to inspect and have begun a legal process against those operating the venue.
Richard Tsoi from the #HongKong Alliance said the museum has organized the same exhibitions over the past 10 years and they were never visited by government officials. He thinks this may be politically motivated and has sought legal opinions on how to respond.

#Zoom shut down the account of Chinese dissident @ZhouFengSuo, days after he held a virtual commemoration for the #TiananmenMassacre…
Zhou told me he knows exactly why his account was shut down: "Zoom was acting on behalf of CCP’s China by canceling my account. It was imposing Beijing’s censorship”…
Zoom restored the account last night, only after media attention, citing "local laws” as the reason for the shut down.

But this just raises more questions...…

Additionally, they expanded their crackdown on civil society to #HongKong, triggering a months-long protest against a controversial extradition bill. Since then, spaces within civil society for citizens to initiate events critical of the Chinese government is rapidly ...

India -China stand off in Ladakh is in news these days . China has illegally occupied Aksai Chin as well as Saksgam valley gifted to china by Pakistan.
@narendramodi ji Has we ever told to China about historical facts in clear terms like Treaty of Chushul.
1.General Zorawar Singh captured Ladakh, Kargil, Suru Valley, Baltistan, Gilgit, Hunza and Yagistan principalities and included them in kingdom of Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1846.
In 1841, Zorawar Singh invaded western Tibet.
2. General Zorawar and his men went on pilgrimage to Mansarovar and Mount Kailash. He had extended his communication and supply line over 450 miles of inhospitable terrain by building small forts and pickets along the way. The fort Chi-T’ang was built near Taklakot.

1/ Despite foreign doubts and #Hongkongers’ criticism, #NPC just passed #nationalsecuritylegislation. # China unilaterally imposes the law with its legislation entirely under a black box, with no legislative scrutiny and public consultation.
2/ Today’s decision is a direct assault on the will of #HKers. China is scrapping its promise of autonomy under the Joint Declaration, a legally binding international treaty, & burying 1Country2System when a #secretpolice agency can enforce #China’s laws within territory of HK.
3/ Up to now, #Beijing loyalists keep downplaying the adverse impacts on HK’s judicial independence & civil liberties. Under similar law in China, people seeking justice for #TiananmenMassacre, supporting HKProtest were sentenced to jail. It might kill HK’s democratic movements.

#CCP’s #World #Domination Strategy: #Weaponise Everything

Tactics: #Disguise, #Deflect, #Defame, #Divide, & #Deny

* Overseas researchers, academics, etc. are actually #spies.
* Chinese news outlets are actually its #propaganda mouthpiece. 1/n
* Belt & Road Initiative (#BRI) is actually Bait & Rob Initiative (debt trap diplomacy).

* America’s human right violations are worse than China’s.
* China can’t contribute much financially to international bodies because it’s an underdeveloped country. 2/n
* CCP ordered @WHO to call it #Covid19, but not #WuhanVirus, so as to disassociate it.

* Blamed #America, then #Italy, then #France as the origin of the virus.
* Play #victim: China lost many lives so as to let the world have time to save their people. 3/n

1/#China #bully seems to have recovered enough from #ChineseVirus & is back to its old #rowdy behavior of provoking border clashes in Sikkim…
With its Govt, #China can never be a friend. #Trump இந்தியாவை "மிரட்டி"யதற்கு கெட்ட ஆட்டம் போட்ட கோமாளிஸ் எங்கே😂
2/ After indulging in nonsensical acts, #China indulges in usual blabber, "committed to uphold peace", "on border issue, our position is clear & consistent" etc.
The provocation is because India thwarted dragon march by amending #FDI act preventing takeover of Indian entities
3/ Bully back to its #rowdy behavior. #China Govt is that incorrigible.
Refusing to see reason, take lessons is the hallmark of a dictatorial regime.

Today’s #Inktober prompt is “Demons” and what could be more fitting than the state of the Chinese government? They censor and ban everything from photos of Tank Man during the Tiananmen massacre, to silly memes of Winnie the Pooh. Image
And they have disappeared people for posting these memes. What kind of dystopian nightmare of a country has my birthland become?

There is no freedom in China and that’s exactly why the people of Hong Kong have been protesting so hard for their freedom. Image
Their bravery is so inspiring, like that of Tank Man who stood up to the tanks that slaughtered countless pro democracy students in 1989. Even if China censors everything within their firewalls, we in the free world will remember and spread the truth. Image
