Great Regulars: The day of which Liu [Xiaobo] writes

is June 4, 1989, known around the world as the Tiananmen Square protests, and within dissident circles in China as the June 4th massacre.

More than two decades later, it is unclear how many activists gave their lives to the struggle. The Chinese government has yet to offer an official apology. One thing, however, is certain. Liu has dedicated his life to remember those who did.
