  • To mark the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, Four Corners has carefully pieced together vision and audio captured by ABC reporters and crew that show how the events unfolded in the Spring of 1989.

    This condensed version of ‘Tremble and Obey’ presents an incredible trove of footage from the ABC’s archive and shows scenes of joy and optimism on the streets of China that have not been seen since the Communist Party’s brutal killing of its own people 30 years ago.

    The full film, Tremble and Obey, includes interviews with many of the key participants of the protest movement who were subsequently placed on China’s ‘most wanted’ list. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mePptwTzn0

    This is why Trumps China trade war, will not win…the Chinese government can make millions of Chinese people disappear, if the trade war starts to effects China's economy in a bad way.

    Dixian Yang says:

    Chinese government were ill-treated Taiwanese. But Taiwanese people are ill treated our China mainland people.

    Nasty Ameri says:

    where is the MASSACRE! WHERE IS MASSACRE! There were protest, there were tanks, there were tear gas, but where was the MASSACRE! ABC news should be responsible for the words they use or they just want to mislead western people to believe there were massacre!

    harry loo says:

    Surely these peaceful students should be allowed to overthrow the Chinese government. And yeah, Dengxiaoping should step down too, he is totally over rated!
    Chinese must be given the opportunity to realize the western ideological theory called democracy. Together with it and elect a Chinese Trump to Make China Great Again!
    If that doesn't work, have a democratic referendum to for each provinces to remove themselves from China into independent country so their can govern themselves!
    Democracy or death!

    Noah says:

    BIG A says:

    That's what the DNC wants to see play out here.

    pervertt says:

    I remember watching this on TV 30 years ago. Amid the sound of gunfire, I could hear the Internationale being sung. That generation of young people will never be repeated.

    Sheuno says:

    Frustrated kangaroos faking the crocodile tears for the Chinese while Australia is being islamised and conquered by the multicultural gift right now lmao. Also enjoy your COAL BAN, that's your "Tiananmen massacre" 😉

    Peter Wójtowicz Francis says:

    Crushed Democracy in China!

    Fucc! Idiots don't you know China isn't a Democracy. Duh!

    Good job China, keep hold on your people. Don't let the mob rule you…

    Joe C.D. says:

    Wow! That was moving

    Mouldy Bread says:

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WATCHING THIS VIDEO! Story is not complete. Title is misleading

    Diosdado Santiago says:

    Communist China will ban, censure, cover up, etc. If those don't work they'll jail and/or kill even their youths.

    沈粤洋 says:

    These can only make the Communist Party look bad, but it doesn't make any sense for now. This is ideological propaganda

    Paul Zhang says:

    底下评论的一帮中国五毛,别说什么民主国家就分裂的蠢话,中国也不是自古就这么大,分裂出去新疆西藏又能怎样。要说为了人民不受苦共匪不能倒,那同样的理论可以说清朝不能倒,中国的国民政府也不能倒。这么说的人我就问你如果你体能长个瘤子,你会因为怕流血怕受罪而不做手术吗。

    N Hunter says:

    So….. where is the massacre part???

    沈粤洋 says:

    McCarthyism is waking up. it will kill your this time.

    Jack Hong says:

    邓小平高瞻远瞩,粉碎西方的阴谋。

    Jack K. Sharp says:

    Where's the massacre? All I see just students and sitting soldiers, peaceful protest thumbs up.

    杨凯镇 says:

    幸好当时总理果断,中国不能在还没成功时就被扼杀,而且从东欧到苏联的结果来看他们成功了中国就要万劫不复了

    Tropic Lightning2019- says:

    USA Should have supplied these people with munitions and small arms.
