Hundreds March in HK to Mark 1989 Beijing Massacre

No one remembers the crushing of democracy in China 2 decades ago. Since then big business has profited greatly from the suppression of rights in that country. Therefore, there are no memorials in the west to those brave freedom fighters slaughtered by the Chinese military. We don't want to rock the boat; business is good. Because, remember: profits are thicker than rights:
About 400 people marched in driving rain in Hong Kong on Sunday to protest Beijing's 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown on a pro-democracy movement.

Huddled under a sea of umbrellas and holding banners and placards, the protesters also held a rally against a local politician's remarks this month denying the massacre.
