Tiananmen Commemorations 

June 5, 2014 
by Patrick Zachmann 
Multiple demonstrations have occurred in Hong Kong marking the 25th anniversary of the June 4th, 1989 Tiananmen massacre. Included were a candlelight vigil and a protest by students who'd erected a model of a tank - with one participant portraying the "tank man" - and a copy of the Statue of Democracy that had been present during the 1989 demonstrations in Beijing.
Patrick Zachmann, who'd been present at Tiananmen Square in 1989, photographed these events in Hong Kong and also returned to the same areas he'd visited during the original demonstrations.
