Tiananmen Square - 1989 revisited - part 3

The third part in a PBS piece published in 2001 by Andrew J. Nathan and Perry Link:

April 22

More than 100,000 university students assemble outside the Great Hall of the People, where Hu's memorial service is being held. Three students carry a petition of demands up the steps of the Great Hall and insist on meeting Li Peng; he does not respond. Over the next days, the students boycott classes and organize into unofficial student unions -- an illegal act in China.
