Storyline

Student protests in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, in June 1989 started peacefully. Calls for democracy and a more open and gentle society found sympathy in the hearts of many of the soldiers sent to control the demonstrations. But orders from higher up resulted in a violent crackdown on the protestors. A day later, a man carrying two shopping bags crossed onto a road and waited for a column of tanks to approach him. In doing so, he created one of the twentieth century's most moving images, an icon of dissent. His identity remains unknown to this day. Written by Anonymous
