Fighting For Victims Of Tiananmen

From Toronto Star:

His portrait hangs on the living room wall, where he is forever smiling, sturdy – and 17.

His ashes are kept in a wooden cabinet just below.

On it, his father has inscribed: “In these short 17 years, you lived like a real man. Your humanitarian nobility and integrity will be kept in the undying memory of history. Your forever loving father and mother.”

It has been 20 years since high school student Jiang Jielian was shot dead during the Tiananmen Square massacre of June 1989.

His mother and father, Ding Zilin and Jiang Peikun, will never forget.

Nor will they let the Communist party forget.
