Tiananmen Protesters Still in Jail, Advocate Says – New York Times

At least 60 people remain jailed in China over the June 1989 protests by pro-democracy demonstrators centered at Tiananmen Square in Beijing, a human rights activist says. John Kamm, executive director of the Dui Hua Foundation, an advocacy group for political prisoners, urged China to release the protesters, who may number as many as 100, before the Summer Olympics in Beijing in August. The protests led to a military crackdown that killed hundreds of people.

When I hear about how the Olympics is going to be China’s “coming-out party” to the world… I wonder if any of these people will get to join in the coming out.
