On June 4, 1989, in Beijing, Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government bloody suppressed college students and citizens who demanded democratization.

Tiananmen Square, which celebrated its 31st anniversary, had strong boundaries and limited coverage of foreign media.
The Chinese government tries to eradicate the Tiananmen case under strict control, but Hong Kong has held a rally for victims every year since 1990.
However, the Hong Kong police for the first time in 30 years have denied the rally today.
Corona 19 was raised on the grounds of concern for the spread, and some analysts say it is an attempt to prevent the anti-Chinese sentiment from erupting as a group while the Hong Kong National Security Act is being enacted.
The organizers rebelled and said they would hold the assembly in a variety of ways. We decided to hold an online memorial meeting and hold a candle-lighting campaign all over the city at 8 PM.
Amid rising tensions in Hong Kong, the Chinese government is speeding up the enactment of Hong Kong security laws.
After passing the draft security law, yesterday, a few days later, Hong Kong's Secretary of State Carrie Lam was brought to Beijing to hear comments.
Some observers say the security law will be enforced in August to win the pro-China side in the September Hong Kong Legislative Assembly elections.
