Exploration 4: Preston Bryan

Part 1
After learning about the Tiananmen Square protest I believe that the most important things to remember and learn about it are the order of events of how it happened. It started with the death of a former communist party leader who was working to make things more democratic. after his death students decided to march and were calling for a more democratic system. China then declares martial law in the area and cuts off news and stops reporters from photographing it. It was after this that troops are brought in and begin to fire at the student.

Part 2
This picture was taken on June 2, 1989 and shows you how large the crowd was at Tiananmen Square
This is and aerial view of the Hong Kong protest this photo is able to effectively show just how large the crowd is  that is protesting in Hong Kong and compared to the other picture it show how many more people are there.


  1. It is really crazy to see just how many people there are supporting the protests in Hong Kong. Especially compared to Tiananmen.

  2. Wow. I like how your pictures correlate well. The image of Hong Kong is so powerful. And yes, i agree, the order of the events is very important to remember.

  3. I really like the second picture because it shows the shear size and support the people have in Hong Kong towards the new government they want.
