Human Security and Peacebuilding Program Head Ken Christie spoke with CFAX Radio’s Al Ferraby on the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

Here is an excerpt:

‘The pro-democracy movement was crushed. Thousands of people probably died. We don’t know the figures because the Chinese government won’t release them, but we do know there are probably between hundreds and thousands of people who died in these demonstrations. […] There were protests not going on just in Beijing, there were protests in more than 300 cities across the country.’

The interview was aired on CFAX Radio.
