Chinese Crackdown On Protest Lead To Tiananmen Square Massacre
The Chinese crackdown on The protest that occurred in Tisnanmen Square was a result of the desire to gain human rights among the students of the university, who, oriented by Fang Lizhi, saw a need for a democratic government that would provide them with their intended desire as citizens of the republic of China.
This then led to a protest which even included military involvement with their rifles as they were deployed to the demonstration and controlling the square at the time of the protest.
The History Of The Tiananmen Square Demonstration Begins
For the sake of the democratic system of government and economic reform, Feng, on his part, began to orient the university students on the benefits of having their human rights and the reform of political leadership that can only respond to the citizen’s demand if agreed upon without violence.
His teaching made him a betrayer who borrowed foreign culture in the period of his journey, which resulted in the need for impartial government and economic activities to be implemented as soon as possible. The slowish responses from government officials prove that they benefited from both the private sectors and business owners since prices were manipulated for their benefit.
The First Adopted Protest
Finally, the result of his lecture led to a student demonstration in December 1986 on a single mindset. It was the first protest that went round major cities in China with Deng Xiopeng’s awareness, but violented its reason for action, aside from the Chinese Communist Party General Secretary Hu Yaobang, who had foreseen the future of the young ones if reform had not been put in place.
The partiality that has swallowed the truth part of the government needed to be erupted from the political system, bringing economic and centralizing the system of government.
The Tiananmen Square Protest, June 4, 1989
The fact is that Tisnanmen Square provided a better place for the Chinese military and other armed forces to equip themselves through parades while also recording two occasions when Chinese students observed protests: the 1919 and the 1989 protests, at the same time accommodating a large crowd.
Meanwhile, residents continue to have their orientation changed towards the existing system in which the Chinese handle the affairs of the nation. Aside from that, Hu’s departure on April 22nd added a philosophy to the student who didn’t see his death as ordinary because the results proved he died of a heart disease after being succeeded by Zhao Ziyang.
Despite the fact that students were the majority of those who took part in the demonstration, there was a large crowd of people watching as they bore witness to how citizens are assualted for demanding equality with the less privileged in the country.
The Chinese Responded To The Protest
Just like Hu Yaobang slowly responded to the first of its kind while still in his position. All efforts by the newly appointed secretary of government to turn a deafening ear to student and community demands appear futile.
The Chinese government then sent in troops to intervene immediately with open fire on the protesting students rather than send peace action, as Zhao Ziyang interceded. At this point, the demonstration had failed to favor them.
As a result of this, more than a hundred students were killed as the Tisnanmen Square could accommodate a crowd of more than 400.
The cause of this affected innocent properties around the square, while the Chinese government’s response proves a lack of interest toward their citizens in the quest for reform. Rather, they would like to keep their greed and the previous way in which they have partially run humans right, both politically and economically.
However, the media covered the casualties as well. Even as the survivors began to abandon all protest intentions, peace spread throughout the entire protest area, with soldiers surrounding the protest square.
The Aftermath Of The Protest
Following the crackdown and the demonstration for democracy, the Chinese government recorded many casualties and deaths, and also received a response from the United States government for their careless and negative response to the demand of their residents.
Most of the government were arrested and a new system was implemented by the U.S.A. by granting the economic desires of the protesters as proof of authority and power over the activities of the nation, as well as displeasing all officials that contributed to the massacre during the demonstration.
Moreover, when human rights are violently violated, it tends to affect the most learned citizens of the country, especially those who have seen how other countries have equally shown democracy among their citizens and, in return, made such a country live in peace, but that wasn’t a part of Chinese culture as at then until the world advanced in knowledge and leaders began to embrace democracy.
