Tiananmen Square protest marks 30th anniversary   

BEIJING (AP) — Chinese authorities stepped up security on June 4 around Tiananmen Square in Beijing, in the government's attempts to quash any memories of its bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protests 30 years ago.

Extra checkpoints and street closures greeted tourists who showed up before 5 a.m. to watch the daily flag-raising ceremony. An honor guard marched across a barricaded road and raised the Chinese flag as the national anthem played.

Hundreds, if not thousands of people are believed to have been killed in 1989 when the government sent in the military to clear Tiananmen Square of protesters.

Wang Dan, then a freshman at Peking University, was a key leader of the student protests.

"It is time for us now, for the whole democratic countries now, to re-recognize the true face of the (Communist Party of China)," Wang said in a news conference in Tokyo on May 29.

Pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong gathered on the night of June 4 for the annual candlelight vigil at Victoria Park. Organizers estimated the number of vigil participants at 180,000.
