HOW THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY CRUSHED DEMOCRACY

Thirty years ago, in the centre of China’s communist capital, millions of students and citizens staged weeks of protests calling for democracy. The students and their fellow protesters stared down their government in the full gaze of the world’s media, demanding an end to totalitarian rule. Then, the People’s Liberation Army turned its guns, and its tanks, on its own people.

Three decades on, while many will be marking the anniversary around the world, the events of Tiananmen Square remain one of the most sensitive and taboo topics in China. Tremble & Obey vividly brings the story of these momentous times to life, interviewing many of the key participants who led the protests and were subsequently placed on China’s ‘most wanted’ list, and drawing upon a trove of vision and audio captured by ABC reporters and crews in that astonishing spring of 1989.
