The 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre

A new photo of the Tiananmen Square "tank man" is incredible. It shows he had a lot of time to contemplate the huge tanks rumbling towards him -- and yet he stood his ground. He's in the upper left of the photo.

Also, I never knew this existed, but there is actually VIDEO of the Tiananmen Square "tank man" that is also amazing. Youtube is taking a while to load this video today -- but give it a minute, it'll change your life:

Footage of the massacre itself from Canadian television:

PBS Frontline special on The Tank Man. Full video can be streamed online.

Many thanks to the NY Times for the links and their excellent coverage of the anniversary of the massacre today.
