Tiananmen Square Massacre Anniversary

In light of recent political squabbles, it seems many would rather perform dilatation than voting for local councils and the European Union (Labour was my choice) however the expenses scandal and Gordon Brown's position becoming increasingly unstable leaving opponents with greater confidence of winning seats, I've read and watched documentaries on the 20th anniversary of Tiananmen protests. Would this ever occur in this self absorbed country whereby many haven't even voted or have a political opinion that they could express articulately or in a coherent manner aside from full mouthed rants. Even if the elections lead the disillusioned to vote for the British Nationalists who verge on winning seats and extra publicity, funds and supports across Europe of similar sadistic ideology? Then we would be needed to collectively protest and diminish their powers, surely.

Sadly I cannot see our students, workers and civilians embarking upon Trafalgar Square hellbent on causing a fuss which the Chinese did to great effect even if many lost their lives in such tragic circumstances as their faith in the army was severely destroyed by the Communist regime. To find out more, I recommend these links.
