Beijing

A prominent Chinese military doctor said China should admit it was wrong to fire on anti-corruption protesters in Tiananmen Square, in 1989. In a letter to the communist legislature last month, Dr. Jiang Yanyong recommended that the student movement of 1989 “be reappraised as a patriotic movement.” Jiang said that “the vast majority of people” believed the massacre of hundreds of peaceful protesters was “absolutely wrong.” Last year, Jiang became a national folk hero when he exposed China’s coverup of the SARS epidemic.
