Details: This poster shows the protest in Tiananmen Square. It shows four tanks driving down the middle of the street. Standing before them and blocking their path is a lone protester who tried to stop the advancing tanks until he was pulled into the crowd by several onlookers.
The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 were a series of demonstrations in the People's Republic of China between April 15 and June 4, 1989. The demonstrations centered on Tiananmen Square in Beijing, but large-scale protests occurred throughout China. The suppression of the protest was immortalized in Western media by the famous video footage and photographs of a lone man in a white shirt standing in front of a column of tanks.
