Tiananmen Square - 1989 revisited - part 28

The 28th part in a PBS piece published in 2001 by Andrew J. Nathan and Perry Link:

Following June 4, 1989...

• On June 4, 1994, the fifth anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre, Li Peng, stills serving as Premier, announces new security regulations defining political discussions outside the Party line as sabotage.

• In June 2004, the government produces a five-hour documentary on the Tiananmen 1989 protests, portraying them as "counterrevolutionary rebellion," and requiring officials around the country to view it.

And of course we saw this on June 5, 1989:
