thePodcast: Remembering the Tiananmen Square massacre, 35 years later

ADVERTISEMENT
For the week of June 2, 2024:

The 35th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre is June 4. 

Throughout the spring of 1989, university students occupied the vast square in the centre of the capital, demanding democratic reforms. 

Then the People’s Liberation Army violently quashed the protests as the world watched the horror unfold. Nobody knows for sure if the death toll was in the high hundreds or low thousands.

Since then, the Chinese Communist Party has only become more powerful inside and outside China. Xi Jinping has taken away civil liberties from Hong Kongers and is threatening to invade Taiwan. China continues to interfere in democracies, such as Canada, through its United Front Work Department propaganda and espionage program. 

On this edition of the Podcast, hear highlights of interviews from the vault with Tiananmen Square survivor Zhou Fengsuo (2019) and former Hong Kong reporter Fenella Sung (2018). 

Plus, this week’s Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
