Following the resilience from the protesters, the then Chinese paramount leader Deng Xiaoping and other party elders resolved in using force against the protesters. They declared a total Martial law on the protesters and deployed 300,000 troops to Beijing that led to the wide spread killing at the Tiananmen Square and arrest of the protesters and their supporters, and also expelled foreign journalist from china.

The Tiananmen Square Massacre The Tiananmen Square Massacre occurred as a result of the government attacking innocent citizens to ensure control and undisputed power. As a result, thousands of people died along with the hope of China. The government looks at it like it never happened, and whoever brings up this incident, receives cruel punishment. On May 15, a Soviet leader named Mikhail S. Gorbachev went to Beijing, China. When he led, he had relaxed limits on free speech and opened up the Soviet political system to democratic reforms.
These events sparked a domino effect of riots, beatings, bombings and violence centered in Northern Ireland, which occurred over the next thirty years and claimed the lives of more than three thousand civilians and military personnel. But in 1968, violence was occurring all over the globe! In Mexico, student protests were violently put down by the government, resulting in the death of many innocent people . In Prague, Czechoslovakia, a new wave of free thought amongst students led Soviet officials to send troops and tanks into the city streets that put down what they considered “anti-Communist” behavior. Whether it was in these countries or China, France, Argentina, or Germany, people stood up for their rights and were brutally put down by authoritative figures.
Unfortunately the United States went wrong when they decided to take over advantage by bombing areas that they assumed(taught) were Vietnamese supply lines. So they were killing thousands of Cambodian people for areas they taught were places were Vietnam stored weapons and such. Of course this would cause a country to become hostile. Who wouldn’t? If your friends with two countries and one country decides to take risk of your people and their mistakes kill off your people that would definitely cause you to become just as hostile as Cambodia.
The Tiananmen Square Massacre In 1989, one of the world’s most shocking incidents occurred in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. The peaceful protest held by the students against the Chinese Communist Party was ended as Deng gave the order for open fire. As the tanks rolled in on them this marked the sad death for around 200 students. However we are unsure of the exact amount for the death toll as the Chinese government concealed it as much as possible. In this essay I will explain and describe the responses to the incident by China and the other nations of the world, why they reacted in their particular way and how their reaction may have changed over the last few years.
World History II 26 April 2013 The word genocide is defined as: the deliberate killing of a large group of people of those of a particular ethnic group or nation. On December 13, 1937 Japanese troops invaded the Chinese city of Nanking; this was to be known as one of, if not the most horrific events in history. Even the Nazi party was horrified by these events. The Rape of Nanking, or Nanjing Datusha, as it is known as in China, wiped out an entire city full of art and history. Although this was true, it is often referred to as the “forgotten Holocaust”.
He stopped anyone who wished to invade China and subsequently doubled the size of China. He also punished anyone who got in his way in the homeland. He murdered many confucian scholars to keep his popularity. His punishments were very harsh and led to unpopularity among everyone, similar to the tang punishment. (Doc # 3).
After the death of Yuan Shikai, China was politically divided among warlords,due to lack of a powerful leader.There was virtually no government at Peking nor was there any government in the Southern China. As a result, riots and Banditary became a regular feature. China was in a state of anarchy under the warlords. In such a situation, there was a vibrant force among the youth of China. Also, due to industrialization, there was emergence of intellectuals and the bourgeoise class, who were tryin to make a strong political structure.
When news leaked of these “made in china” uniforms U.S citizens were outraged. Some U.S political figures went as far as to demand the uniforms be burned and replaced (Minter, 2012). This particular statement about “burning” China-made goods sparked a reaction from the Chinese government. Controversy about the uniforms began to create a feud amongst China and America. Although familiar with cynical political remarks from America over the years, China now felt that Americans were being hypocritical and bigoted.
China’s response to this was to implement their prohibition against import of this drug by destroying a lot of opium on the ships arriving at the Port of Canton. Their anger and actions towards the Europeans caused the first Opium War. Frustrated, the British brought in their gunboats to open up the trade doors of China again (Macartney). China lost the war and was forced to sign the unequal Treaty of Nanjing, which included many conditions, like opening up several treaty ports, giving away Hong Kong, and giving Britain “favored nation status”. This all weakened the country even more.
