Students boil in China, reminding why the year 1919 and the Tiananmen Square revolt

Beijing: The government is taking strict steps to prevent corona cases in China. In view of this, now the anger among the citizens has started to flare up. On Sunday, students protested against the strict lockdown at Peking University in Beijing. As soon as the pictures of this demonstration started spreading on the Internet of China, immediately the Chinese government started its censorship. Photos were removed from social media. This demonstration of students is reminiscent of the 1919 and 1989 Tiananmen Square movements in the country.

Students’ anger at Peking University came out when the school banned the delivery of food, enforcing strict Corona restrictions. Students living on the campus said that they were earlier confined to a part of the campus and visitors were also banned. Several students reported that more than 300 students gathered outside the university’s Wanliu campus and started shouting slogans.

Relaxation in rules after the demonstration
The students said that the rules made for teachers and students were completely different. The students told that their normal life has been completely ruined due to the restrictions. A fence was put up around the campus of the students at night, which was broken by the students. After the protest by the students, the Vice Principal agreed that he would soon relax the rules. Changes have come about in China in the past also due to the performance of the students. This demonstration may be small, but it is a big thing to raise your voice in China even at such a small level. For this reason, this demonstration is reminiscent of the student protests of 1919 and 1989.

What happened in 1919 and 1989
There is a dictatorial government in China which does not allow people to live with free thinking. But whenever there have been agitations here, it has been done by the students. On May 4, 1919, more than five thousand students held a large demonstration in Peking to protest against the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. Along with this, these demonstrations were also held in Shanghai. In this demonstration, a part of China was opposed to Japan. At the same time, in 1989, Chinese students demonstrated against the government at Tiananmen Square, after which the Chinese government imposed martial law. On June 3-4, the army massacred this square. According to government figures, about 200 people were killed and 7,000 were injured. But many human rights activists say thousands of people were killed in it.
