Tiananmen Square Massacre: Black Night In June (2019)

This new film by Arthur Kent recounts the June 4, 1989 assault by the People’s Liberation Army on pro-democracy demonstrators in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.

Consisting entirely of footage recorded by Kent during the massacre, restored in 4K UHD video, the film follows student protesters as they resist the army’s advance.

Featured are the voices and words of the students, and the chilling megaphone decrees of the Communist Party’s martial law authority: leave the square now or suffer the consequences.

  1. I found these foreigners are ignorant, so the fierce scene, why cut the beginning and end, and reporters report. After seeing this quite problem, do not need to be deceived by you again, the Western media does not have a good thing!

  2. Imagine having a friend you have been with for years skipping college and enlisting to the army thinking hes doing what's good for his country, while you go to college. Then you peacefully protest at Tiananmen Square for basic rights. Then you see the army coming, and you see your friend on the back of the truck. You come to him and try to say hi, but then you feel a sudden burst of pain. You look up to him, tears forming in his eyes while looking at your chest. As you look at your white shirt, its bleeding red. Another soldier comes and pushes you down to the ground, and you hear laughter. As you lay down on the asphalt in shock while slowly bleeding to death due to your wounds, world fading to black, you forgive your friend for his actions, and think hopefully China will be reformed after your death. As your final thought think of the good old days with your friend and how you used to play with him all the time after school. You know your time is up. You slowly accept your fate, while the world fades to darkness…

  3. I must remind you that these nurses were sent by the government to treat the students

    The Western media likes to use this incident to attack the Chinese government
    Because the Chinese people can not see it and the facts will not be exposed

  4. "Peacefuly for freedom"… although i think this had done too far, but ive got to point out the fact that it wasn't peaceful in beijing. The protesters killed polices, they destroyed army vehicles, they directly threatened the government for weeks. AND they stole guns from the army. Dont deny how dangerous it will be for "peaceful protesters" having guns. plus china is a no gun country. just imagine thousands of "peaceful protesters" sitting and threatening the government on the backyard of the White House. some can even have guns. Dont even try to argue, my mother was also one of the protesters back in 1989.

  5. The whole video did not see a PLA shooting at people in 12 minutes. Instead, the students held a lot of knives, guns and sticks in their hands. If the video in which both sides did not contact could also be said to be PLA shooting at students, then this year, the U.S. Civil Guard really slaughtered the people. What's more, the video signal of the six hours in front of the White House was missing. How many people died in those six hours American? Freud, I know you can't breathe, but look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEEQMRg2PB4

  7. 我以前在大学内网看到的比这个要多,那个时候觉得真是颠覆认知啊槭,一晃18年过去了,中国竟然又倒退了

  8. 64 event is still hyped by west nowadays. Actually they wont let u know how may PLA lives were burnt or killed. They won't let u know protesters who were injured are much less than people that were injured in Freud event. CCP did not perfect at that time, but they saved the whole nation from chaos and continuely led Chinese people to make this country better and stronger. We Chinese people buy this.

  9. Oh god i broke down when you said that some of those kids are med students, man seeing them there helping others in those white dresses brought me to tears… to not communicate with jounger generations to achieve peace and rather shoot them is the evilest thing that can happen in a country.

  10. I came here from r/sino……. Fuck. Everyone. On. That. Subreddit.
    It's a cesspool of priveliged degenerates gagging for CCP affection. All of them making excuses for Chinese aggression/atrocities. And they're doing it from countries that grant them a plethora of democratic rights unheard of under CCP rule.
    What garbage people. I hope they regret their lives every second of every day. Fuckasses
