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.
