Our magazine joins several religious organizations, NGOs in commemorating the 30th anniversary of the June 4, 1989 massacre.

This June 4th will mark the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, in which the Chinese Communist Party massacred thousands of innocent student protestors. The People’s Republic of China to this day, censors any mention of the Massacre and refuses to acknowledge it even happened. The regime that ordered those murders is still the same one currently reigning in Beijing, and its human rights abuses continue to this day.

Please join us at the US Capitol, Washington DC, for a rally to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre and to highlight the continued suppression of the Chinese people by the Chinese Communist Party. Speakers will include witnesses of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989, activists, and policymakers, including VOC Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Co-Chair of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA).

Please register here.
