China Tiananmen Then and Now
In this combination of photos, a May 26, 1989 file photo, top, shows a sanitation worker cleaning up Tiananmen Square which had been occupied by student protesters, and the same spot almost 25 years later, in a May 22, 2014 photo, bottom, a cleaner, wearing a red armband who is part of the civilian security informers, watches tourists on her electric tricycle in Beijing. A quarter century after the Communist Party’s attack on demonstrations centered on Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989, the ruling party prohibits public discussion and 1989 is banned from textbooks and Chinese websites.
