As the 25th anniversary of the June 4th, 1989 crackdown on protest in Tiananmen square grows ever nearer, names are being added to the list of those detained, placed under house arrest, or questioned by authorities as the central government makes efforts to conceal commemoration of that unfortunate date 25 years ago (for up-to-date records of detentions, house-arrests, and other restrictions, see lists from Human Rights in China and Amnesty International).
