Tiananmen Square Friday, 4 June, 1999, 11:08 GMT 12:08 UK
Tiananmen Square remembered
Was Tiananmen Square a turning point for Chinese democracy? How did it change dissidence in China? Ten years after the uprising, BBC News Online took this in-depth look at what it all meant for China.

Where are they now?
The BBC's James Miles travelled to Boston and New York to find out what the Tiananmen leaders are doing now and how they remember the events of 1989.

The Tiananmen uprising marked a political setback for liberals in the Communist Party, but it did in the end provide the impetus for an economic revolution.


Hi-tech Tiananmen a long way off
Technology has not been the watershed to Chinese dissidents that many had originally hoped, writes Jane Black.

Dissidence then and now
The BBC's James Miles went to China 10 years after the massacre and found today's dissidents still stunned by the turn of events.


How the West was lost
The demonstrations had all the ingredients of a global television story. But what the Western media portrayed and what actually happened were not the same thing, writes Rob Gifford.

Student division leads Tiananmen failure
The Tiananmen Square demonstrations appeared to be a unified movement challenging a stultified communist state. But the reality was somewhat different.
