June 4, 1989 Tiananmen Square

Although this is a blog about enjoying animals, not a political blog, I'm making an exception today to observe the 20th anniversary of the pro-democracy uprising in Beijing's Tianamen Square when the army moved on its own citizens to crush the demonstration. In an attempt to quell observances of the anniversary, the Chinese government blocked a number of electronic communications.

Those of us living in countries with laws protecting our right to free speech can mark this day for the sake of those who cannot.


  1. We are certainly lucky to live where we do. Unbelievable that 20 years has passed.

  2. The imposed silence on communications just made it more obvious to the rest of the world how wrong the Chinese government is.
