忘却的纪念

快到一二九了,很多活动在学校里搞起来了。想起了前几天外刊选读上的一个china's image in westerners' eyes的题目,去国外的网站上看了些资料。原来自己也把那些周年给忘记了,仿佛今年只有60周年国庆。
It is the 10th anniversary of the major protests by Falun Gong religious sect, which led to thousands of arrests, ant later 70 million people were forced to rebel their rligion.
It is the 20th anniversary of the crackdown on the 1989 pro-democracy demonstrations in Tiananmen Square, in which thousands were killed, mostly students. And the protests remain the most visible challenge to communist rule.
It is the 50th of the Tibetan revolt, which was bloodly crushed by the PLA.
It is the 90th of the May 4 movement, but during its celebration, people has forgetten a major point that people in that age can challenge their rulers.
Holding a luxurious celebration on Oct 1, the one-party government never mentioned any of these anniversaries. It seems that it has got the selective amnesia.
