Exploration 4: Xavier Gregory

Part one: I think the most important thing to remember is the people who fought and held there ground when the army started to make there way through the crowds. Many of those who held their ground fought back with rocks and Molotov cocktails. Some were even seen beating some soldiers to death because the soldiers were killing a demonstrator. When i was in high school i had a chance to interview a person who was there during the demonstration and he told me "he has never seen so much violence in his life" and that quote that he shared with has stayed with since. I believed him completely, the looked that he had was just shocking. He would never be able to forget that event ever.

Part two:

I really like this photo because it shows the the devastation of the incident where the Chinese army is taking out there own people just to end the democracy protest.

I like this photo because for me it connects the future to the past and show that nothing has really change the army still moved the protesters out with force that was not needed.


  1. I think it is very interesting that you have had the privilege to speak with someone who was actually at the event! I cant even begin to imagine the level of chaos..

  2. That is amazing that you had the opportunity to talk to someone who was actually there. But when you said that the Chinese students fought back and the soldiers still carried on and knocked them down harder, it really showed how unfair the entire battle was. Rocks vs Tanks. That's just plain messed up. Actions may speak louder than words, but in this case, words may have saved lives. Love your pictures.

  3. I think its really cool how you were able to interview someone that was there. and how he described it just says it all.

  4. I thought that it was awesome that you actually talked to a person who was there. I'm sure that he will never forget what happened that day many years ago. Your photos do a good job at showing some of the destruction of what happened. Nice research!

  5. I liked your second picture a lot because it really captures the action that is going on between the students and the police and gives a look into what is really happening over there much like in Tiananmen
