Exploration 4: Jorden Greene

This picture really shows the determination of the protesters from Tienanmen Square. The picture literally shows the bloodshed and the strength of the protesters.
After reading about the event of Tienanmen Square in 1989 I felt that the most important thing to remember is that you should always remember your history. The Chinese Government refuses to allow people to speak about the events of 1989 thus making it impossible for the kids today to know the inevitable outcome. 

This is another very powerful image of the current protesters. The sign is true, they can't kill them all but they can sure try. Today's protesters don't know the magnitude of the governments power over in China.


  1. I wonder if they hid the past on purpose so people would repeat the past instead of finding a way to change it and possibly over throw the government to get their democracy.

    1. That is an interesting theory, I would believe that.

  2. I agree, it is the sad truth that no matter how hard the protesters try the Chinese Government is capable of crumbling it with lethal force.

  3. That first picture is very capturing. It shows the true brutality of what happend but also the determination and will power that was neccesary of the people of china to hold these protest and stand strong.

  4. I would have to agree with everyone else that your pictures show the true cost of their protesting. I extremely like your second picture, because although it is a sad message, it is also a joke to keep the protestors spirits high and continue their demonstration.
