1989 : Tienanmen Square and the "China Solution" for East Germany?

Duffield, Lee Richard (2009) 1989 : Tienanmen Square and the "China Solution" for East Germany? (Unpublished)


[This is the script for a radio commentary, translated into Chinese language and broadcast by BBC World Service radio, week beginning 1.6.09.]-----The twentieth anniversary of the shootings at and around Tienanmen square (4.6.09) was being greeted with refreshed horror worldwide, and a certain arrogance in Beijing – where the archived news was officially called “groundless allegations”.-----

In this radio commentary Lee Duffield recalls the moment as seen from another public square, in Europe; and he reprises the information that came out, about the reality of a “Tienanmen Solution” much feared in Eastern Europe, just months after the tragedy in China.
