This Day in 1989: June 4, 1990, Peking University Students Demonstrate on Anniversary
Around 1am of June 4, 1990, about two thousands students and teachers gathered spontaneously in the campus of Peking University and marched to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Tiananmen Massacre, singing the Internationale. The campus was tense on this sensitive time. Some dorms were locked down to prevent more students from participating. The demonstration was brief and without confrontation.
