Heroes: Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989

The men and women who stood up for freedom June 5, 1989 are heroes. Anyone alive then remembers the unknown man who stood in front of several tanks. He faced death with military honors. Behind him though, even more unknown, are the ones killed before they could protest, away from the world's view.
