Alliance Canada Hong Kong (ACHK) remembers the student movement in 1989 and the Tiananmen Square Massacre on June 4th. For 31 years, the Chinese Communist Party has actively suppressed any information about the massacre. We recognize June 4th not only for it’s historical and political significance, but to remember the the violent suppression of student protestors and the importance to standing up to the CCP’s oppressive regime.
In 1989, the Canadian government showed compassion for Chinese student activists facing state persecution by granting them permanent residence status to stay in Canada after the massacre. We look to the Government of Canada for their leadership in supporting Hong Kong activists fleeing state and police violence.
