The Western “Mainstream Media” has lied to you for the past 20 years about the iconic Tiananmen Square incident. The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, culminating in the deaths of hundreds in the “June Fourth Massacre,” was all started because of violent attacks on Chinese by African foreign students at a Hehai University Christmas party.

Two days later, 3,000 students held a protest. The African foreign students fled and their dormitory was torched. The protests continued for months and grew to include other grievances about the government. After several months, the government put a violent end to the protests. Officially 241 people died. Unofficially the number could be several thousand. Hurray for the benefits of diversity!

From New York Times, December 29, 1988

Thousands of students and workers held illegal demonstrations in the eastern city of Nanjing tonight, and the students said they planned to continue with nightly protests until the Government meets their demands to punish African students for their part in a brawl on Saturday.

A core group of about 1,000 students and several thousand more sympathizers confronted the police in a central square in Nanjing, according to four Americans living in Nanjing who spoke in telephone interviews. They said that up to 1,000 police officers, many of them bused in from neighboring Anhui Province, periodically charged in the direction of the crowd, which then retreated only to regroup later.

In all, up to 10,000 people were in the area, but most were onlookers who had heard about the demonstration and wanted to see what was happening, the Americans said. Fourth Day of Protest

The demonstration and march through Nanjing tonight marked the fourth day in a row that thousands of people have taken part in unsanctioned demonstrations in the city. The protests are the biggest manifestation of unrest since the Government suppressed student demonstrations in several Chinese cities in December 1986 and January 1987.

The 1986-87 protests led to a political crackdown and the ouster of the party leader, Hu Yaobang, an advocate of greater liberalization. While the Chinese authorities are clearly very concerned about the latest protests, it is unclear whether they will spread.

The Americans in Nanjing said that the demonstration tonight was more subdued than those earlier in the week, and that today there was no chanting of racial slurs. Instead, the students called for ”human rights” and ”equal justice,” by which they apparently meant that African students who participated in attacks should be punished in the way that Chinese students would be punished.

Nanjing’s approximately 130 African students remain cloistered in a Government guest house in the city of Yangzhou, about 50 miles northeast of Nanjing, to protect them from crowds of Chinese students that attacked the Africans’ dormitory on Sunday and destroyed many of their possessions.
