What really happened in Tiananmen Square in 1989?

This month marks the 27th anniversary of the end of the "Tiananment protests" in China. The western media and historiography usually describe the 1989 events in Beijing as a "bloody massacre". But, what really happened in the Chinese capital 27 years ago? On this occassion we republish two interesting articles which debunk the dominant western point of view. 

Tiananmen Square Massacre is a Myth, 
All We' re 'Remembering' are British Lies.

The original story of Chinese troops on the night of 3 and 4 June, 1989 machine-gunning hundreds of innocent student protesters in Beijing's iconic Tiananmen Square has since been thoroughly discredited by the many witnesses there at the time -- among them a Spanish TVE television crew, a Reuters correspondent and protesters themselves, who say that nothing happened other than a military unit entering and asking several hundred of those remaining to leave the Square late that night.
Yet none of this has stopped the massacre from being revived constantly, and believed. All that has happened is that the location has been changed – from the Square itself to the streets leading to the Square.
