Police in Beijing, People Republic of China (Communist China) were out in force on Thursday 4thJune 2009 to stop any commemoration of the ruthless bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protesters around Tiananmen Square 20 years ago on this day, one day after Washington demanded Beijing account for those killed, whose names are still unknown.
The estimates of how many students and others were killed by the Chinese authorities, vary from many hundreds to thousands! Others have just disappeared!
In Hong Kong however there were commemorations demonstrations and a massive candlelight vigil.
Hong Kong is obviously far more democratic than other parts of P R of China and Malaysia.
The most famous image of the dreadful day 20 years ago
Malaysia PM Najib is, at this most inappropriate time, making an official visit to PRC, his wife and a bunch of others [Transport Minister Ong Tee Keat, Higher Education Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin, Foreign Minister Anifah Aman, International Trade and Industry Minister Mustapa Mohamed and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Koh Tsu Koon as well as many Malaysian business leaders and entrepreneurs], tagging along with him.
By making this visit it seems they are helping Communist China to defect attention for the Tienanmen anniversary.
This is a shameful time for Najib to visit Communist China, it is as though Najib is supporting the suppression of the commemorations of the merciless crackdown in Tiananmen Square Beijing.
Meanwhile in Taiwan twenty Taiwanese protesters held a candlelight vigil in the capital Taipeh on Wednesday 3rd June 2009 to mark the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen crackdown.
Will Najib now add Dr. to his already long name?

Mao Tse-Tung [毛澤東 Mao Zedong]
