One thing that struck me as important was the fact that not only was the Tiananmen Square Protest huge but it caused other cities to begin to protest too. Many students traveled to Tiananmen Square to join the protest and stand up for what they wanted. It surprised me that the students could have things so organized with how many people were there to help.
This photo shows why the protest today is called the umbrella riots. The police are attacking with gas causing the students to protect themselves with umbrellas. As you can see in both pictures, people refuse to give into the government and will stand for what they believe in even if it kills them.
