UC Davis students commemorate June 4th Tiananmen Massacre
On June 4th, 2021, more than 20 students gathered in front of the Memorial Union, UC Davis for a June 4th Tiananmen Massacre Memorial. They watched a short documentary about the 1989 Tiananmen Movement, took a minute of silence in commemoration of the martyrs, and reflected on what the memorial means to them.
Students set up a booth and light candles in commendation to the martyrs at the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre. A student painted a significant scene during the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre — a man standing in front of a tank.
