These protests were such a tragedy, the protesters legitimately believed that these protests would lead to change. The Soviet Union began a policy of Glasnost meaning there would be more openness within the country and more criticism of the government would be allowed without severe repercussions. Theses protesters believed a similar thing could happen in China. The Chinese government also payed attention to the Soviet Union’s changes, however,m they viewed them as a fatal error that would weaken the communist party. Therefore, the Chinese government were resolved to make sure there would be no change.

This makes one so much sadder…
How many of them survived?
