Exploration 4 - Hunter Burnett

     What really struck me to be very important in remembering and learning about these events was the number of young adults and protesters that were murdered and arrested on June 4, 1989. There was said to have been over 10,000 arrests and around 1,000 deaths. Another thing that struck me as being very important to remember was that the then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, was said to have been disappointed and looked down on the actions of China.

This image of the Hong Kong riots of 2014 is very powerful because it shows that these young protesters are willing to lay their lives on the line just to show how dedicated they are and how much they believe in what they are protesting.
