April 1, 2013

On April 1, 2013, in advance of the Qing Ming Festival, a group of independent intellectuals and participants in the 1989 Democracy Movement gathered in a funeral home in Zhengding County, Hebei Province, to pay respect to the victims of the government’s military crackdown on the Democracy Movement. This was the first time in nearly 24 years since the crackdown that citizens in China held such a public memorial to remember June Fourth victims. Also included in this posting is a eulogy signed by 22 individuals.
