(KTSF by Jo Wan)

Most of  a  new generation in China knows nothing about what had happened at Tiananmen Square on June 4th, 1989, including Chen Qiao whose father was a former June 4th dissident.  She said in China, media never  talked  about  the Tiananmen Square crackdown and the subject  is blocked  on the Internet .

Chen came to United State last year  and she has had   a chance to read the articles about  her father and the background of  the Tiananmen massacre.   Yesterday, there was a candlelight vigil and concert held at Portsmouth Square in  San Francisco’s  to remember  the  victims who were killed  on  June 4th 23 years ago. Chen and her friends  helped plan the event.  Chen’s guardian ,  pastor Chang said they are still young  and they represent the hope for democracy for the Chinese people.
