70 Years of Communism in China: Nothing to celebrate, but many to mourn and remember

In memory of those who stood up for their rights, lost their lives and for those still unjustly imprisoned today in China.

Estimates place the number of killed by Chinese Communists at 70 million
Today the world observes the results of the Chinese Communist Party in power for 70 years. The founder, Mao Zedong, committed the biggest mass killings in human history. Responsible for the deaths of as many as 70 million Chinese on his watch alone. Mao died in 1976, but the Chinese Communist Party continued its killing spree, but with more sophistication.

On September 26, 1980 The New York Times ran a UPI story reporting that "Chinese Reds Limited To a Child Per Family"  and euphemistically wrote  "China intensified its population-control drive today by ordering the 38 million Communist Party members to have only one child per family" and how the policy would use "painstaking patience and persuasion." 

Time Magazine reported in 2015 that "patience and persuasion" included "forced abortions and sterilization, and a gender imbalance resulting from female infanticide." Tom Hilditch in the South China Morning Post (Hong Kong) in September of 1995 described it as a "A Holocaust of Little Girls." In 2015 reports emerged that the one-child policy was replaced with a two-child policy.
At least 10,000 killed during the Tiananmen Square massacre.
Thirty years ago the Pro-Democracy Movement that had taken to the streets in April of 1989 was violently crushed by the Chinese communist dictatorship beginning on the evening of June 3, 1989. By dawn on June 4, 1989 scores of demonstrators had been shot and killed or run over and crushed by tanks of the so-called People's Liberation Army. A 2017 declassified British diplomatic cable revealed that "at least 10,000 people were killed. The Chinese Communist regime still defends committing this massacre.

Think of it, the biggest mass murderer of the Chinese people is the Chinese Communist Party. 70 years of mass killings and repression while building the perfect totalitarian cage. There is nothing to celebrate but much to mourn, and also to continue to fight for a free China.
