Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
Is this about the Tiananmen square massacre?
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
I would say A. because on june 4th of 1989 there was a huge protest where students were trying to make the government more open, instead of discussing the situation the government sent down their military and killed thousands of students who were protesting.

Based upon the evidence; "The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, commonly known as the June Fourth Incident (六四事件) or '89 Democracy Movement (八九民运) in Chinese,[1] were student-led popular demonstrations in Beijing which took place in the spring of 1989 and received broad support from city residents, exposing deep splits within China's political leadership. The protests were forcibly suppressed by hardline leaders who ordered the military to enforce martial law in the country's capital.[2][3] The crackdown that initiated on June 3–4 became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre or the June 4 Massacre as troops with assault rifles and tanks inflicted casualties on unarmed civilians trying to block the military's advance towards Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, which students and other demonstrators had occupied for seven weeks. The scale of military mobilization and the resulting bloodshed were unprecedented in the history of Beijing, a city with a rich tradition of popular protests in the 20th century" A is the best choice

  • paki
@Afrodiddle please read this: "The Party leadership expelled Zhao Ziyang from the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (PSC). Hu Qili, another PSC member who opposed the martial law but abstained from voting, was also removed from the committee. He was, however, able to retain his party membership, and after "changing his opinion", was reassigned as deputy minister in the Ministry for Machinery and Electronics Industry. Another reform-minded Chinese leader, Wan Li, was also put under house arrest immediately after he stepped out of his plane at Beijing Capital Airport upon returning from his shortened trip abroad; the authorities declared his detention to be on health grounds. When Wan Li was released from his house arrest after he finally "changed his opinion" he, like Qiao Shi, was transferred to a different position with equal rank but a mostly ceremonial role. Several Chinese ambassadors abroad claimed political asylum..."

\(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @Afrodiddle I would say A. because on june 4th of 1989 there was a huge protest where students were trying to make the government more open, instead of discussing the situation the government sent down their military and killed thousands of students who were protesting. \(\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}\) I was correcting what I said.,

I'm sorry guys but I still believe it is B. Even after the massacre happened the leaders did not take responsibility, in fact all articles, books, and movies of the massacre were banned in china.

I would go with that.

I'm sorry but I still have to go with B. I studied about the massacre is social studies 2 years ago, and I'm too sure about B.
misssunshinexxoxo
  • misssunshinexxoxo
Alright; this question is just generally vague
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
Because it does not say after the protest, it says A protest. Which means that the answer has to be about the actions the chinese leaders used on the protesters. Which was slaughtering them. :(
paki
  • paki
but that protest lead them to participate in government...
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
The government did the opposite, they made sure the protests were covered up like it never happened.
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
@pooja195 Please give us your opinion, this debate has been going on for a while and im just reusing my claims at this point.
paki
  • paki
@Afrodiddle look... "Facing global condemnation for their handling of the protests in 1989, China has endeavored to demonstrate its willingness to participate in international economic and defense institutions in order to secure investment for continued economic reforms. Before the end of 1991, China normalized ties with the Russian government's newly elected president, Boris Yeltsin. The PRC also welcomed Taiwanese business as a replacement for Western investment. Further, China expedited negotiations with the World Trade Organization as well as established relations with Indonesia, Israel, South Korea, and others in 1992. Regarding defense alignments, the government signed The Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1992, The Convention on Chemical Weapons in 1993, and The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty in 1996. Whereas China had been a member of just 30 international organizations in 1986, this membership increased to over 50 by 1997. Finally, while China was a net recipient of aid throughout the 1980s, its growing economic and military role transformed it into a provider of aid, with $100 million given to Thailand in 1997 alone."

But the question does not say after the protest.

"A protest at Square convinced".... mean AFTER protest.....
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
"protest at Tiananmen Square in 1989 convinced China’s leaders to"
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
It did not convince them, they were not convinced, they fealt obligated.
paki
  • paki
still it says AFTER......
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
"Facing global condemnation for their handling of the protests in 1989" this is not a scenario of convincing.
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
They were convinced that they had to handle the protests with hostility.
misssunshinexxoxo
  • misssunshinexxoxo
It's fine; the question is a bit vague
misssunshinexxoxo
  • misssunshinexxoxo
Well a protest could be told as a crackdown though because they are rebelling
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
Convinced means completely certain of something. They were certain that to end the protests they need to kill off the sources.
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
@misssunshinexxoxo is correct, the question is vague.

Um.... I would say B

@TheSmartOne Thanks for your input. :) I was starting to think I was wrong, because of so many people disagreeing.
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
I read a few of the links posted here and other links, and they all say that after this protest, they arrested a lot of the protesters, killed them, tried them, and what not. So it seemed like they were trying to stop any more democratic protests. And in a one link I had read that this topic is banned in China (as of 2012) so if they truly changed to more participation in the government and if the democratic protests didn't become violent, then China should have become a democratic country and still not be a communist country.

After this protest "they tried to expand more democratic protests, bcz of all these killings and blood shed"... @TheSmartOne
paki
  • paki
@TheSmartOne @Afrodiddle @misssunshinexxoxo new Proof... LOL "The savagery of the Chinese government’s attack shocked both its allies and Cold War enemies. Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev declared that he was saddened by the events in China. He said he hoped that the government would adopt his own domestic reform program and begin to democratize the Chinese political system. In the United States, editorialists and members of Congress denounced the Tiananmen Square massacre and pressed for President George Bush to punish the Chinese government. A little more than three weeks later, the U.S. Congress voted to impose economic sanctions against the People’s Republic of China in response to the brutal violation of human rights. "
TheSmartOne
  • TheSmartOne
That's what other countries leaders did, not what China's leaders did :p
Afrodiddle
  • Afrodiddle
This "proof" kinda backs up B.
paki
  • paki
@TheSmartOne "He said he hoped that the government would adopt his own domestic reform program and begin to democratize the Chinese political system" so Chinese government is main focus....

But then again these sanctions could have helped make China more democratic .0.
