 In the spring of 1989, Beijing erupted with the largest spontaneous demonstrations the Peoples' Republic of China had witnessed in its 40-year history. The pro-democracy movement, as it was soon called, spread to 30 cities around China before the world witnessed the horrors of the government's brutal crackdown. As the Chinese people fled from the tanks and guns, they asked the international press to let the world know the truth.
We are honored to present the

Spirit of Tiananmen Pro-Democracy Award
