    More than 55,000 Hong Kong people full up about 6 football filed join candlelight vigil to remember June fourth massacre in Beijing 18 year ago.

    4 June,1989 People’s Liberation Army had killed civilians at Tiananmen square with troops and tanks, killing thousands to quell a "counterrevolutionary rebellion" or later called it the "1989 political storm" .

    I can remember the tv coverage in this country. I hope none of us forget, when we buy our cheap products from china, that there is still a price to pay that isn't just in money.

    One day someone will have to take a stand. Of course everyone hopes it won't be necessary but I can remember the days of the cultural revolution when a few leaders change china for almost a generation and it wasn't a change for the better. Photography wouldn't have been possible then, so maybe there is hope for a peaceful change.

    #9 is awesome! It doesn't have the emotion of the others, but I love it!
