Tiananmen Mothers Call for Reckoning

It has become an annual ritual. Every spring, the National People's Congress and the People's Political Consultative Conference will hold their respective sessions in Beijing. Every year, Tiananmen Mothers writes an open letter to the delegates urging for an investigation of the events that led to the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre.

This year, their letter bears the signatures of 127 parents and relatives of the victims, plus a list of 19 names of those who have since passed away.
