"Down with the government!"



Demonstrators : Students
Shouted by demonstrators in Tiananmen Square as the military opened fire on the unarmed masses in protest to the communist government. On June 3, 1989, after weeks of peaceful occupation by students and frustrated citizens, Beijing's Tiananmen Square erupted into a violent chaos when the government took severe measures to clear the square. Military tanks were sent in to manage the crowds by 'whatever means necessary'. Several hundred unarmed demonstrators were shot dead by the military, inciting worldwide outrage and condemnation.
