True Account of the June 4th Massacre from a Witnesses

Three years ago, on the 30th anniversary of the June 4th Massacre, Jiang Lin, a former military newspaper reporter, recalled the June 4th incident she experienced as a witness. On June 4, 1989, as a journalist, she witnessed the army’s brutal crackdown on civilians in Tiananmen Square. Jiang said that there was no mob and that the so-called clashes were the resistance and self-defense of Beijing citizens against the violent repression.
The residents of Beijing tried to stop police cars from entering Tiananmen Square with a wall of people, and police dropped tear gas, resulting in a clash between the police and the people. At 10:00 p.m. on June 3, the army started shooting at the protesters, and fires broke out as the wall of cars blocking the army burned up. The entire overpass was filled with the army, with double columns of military trucks full of soldiers, firing intensively with machine guns towards the crowd, and the people shouted “Take down the fascists.” Too many people were shot and wounded, and they sent the wounded to the hospital with tricycles and bicycles. From Donghuamen, Xihuamen, and all the way to Tiananmen, the fire was everywhere, and the sound of gunfire was as dense as firecrackers heard from time to time. There was a team of armed police hiding in the darkness, and they came up with batons to encircle and beat the people. Some people among them were shouting “Kill them all.”
