Chinese Army suppresses dissidents in Tiananmen Square

The Chinese Army suppressed dissidents in Tiananmen Square. Students who had been protesting for democracy for months in the middle of Beijing were brutally scattered and broken up, and possibly thousands die in the crackdown. The suppression was in brutal contrast to peaceful revolutions occuring throughout Eastern and Central Europe.
