1989 Tiananmen Square protests
Three Thousand PKU Students marched from the Campus Towards Tiananmen Square
Tian'anmen Square, Dongcheng, Beijing, China
Starting on the night of 17 April, three thousand PKU students marched from the campus towards Tiananmen Square, and soon nearly a thousand students from Tsinghua joined. Upon arrival, they soon joined forces with those already gathered at the Square. As its size grew, the gathering gradually evolved into a protest, as students began to draft a list of pleas and suggestions (Seven Demands) for the government.
