June 4 Museum Special Exhibition
“June 4 Unveiled: The 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown and 40 years of China's reform and opening”
After having been open for two years, the June 4 Museum was closed on 12 July 2016 due to litigation by the owners' corporation of the building in which it was housed. In spite of this, the Alliance’s work on revealing the historical truth has not been interrupted. We actively promote our 'crowdfunding for expansion' campaign (Hang Seng Bank account number: 368-286498-001; cheque payable to 'Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China') for a bigger site to resume operations and continue our mission to convey the truth of June 4.
支聯會今年繼續與社區文化發展中心在石硤尾賽馬會創意藝術中心2樓活動室D合辦「 六四紀念館」專題展。專題展主題為「六四解碼──改革開放40年與六四」，展期由2018年4月20日（星期五）至6 月10日（星期日）。
This year, the Alliance again co-organizes the June 4 Museum Special Exhibition with the Centre for Community Cultural Development in Activity Room D, 2nd Floor, Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre, Shek Kip Mei. “June 4 Unveiled: The 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown and 40 years of China's reform and opening” will be exhibited from 20 April (Fri) to 10 June 2018 (Sun).
The Alliance sincerely invites secondary school teachers in Hong Kong to arrange for students to visit the June 4 Museum Special Exhibition as a learning activity for national education or general education. The June 4 Museum will provide guided tours to introduce the first ten years of reform and opening, the 1989 democracy movement and the June 4 massacre, evaluate the results of reform and opening in five areas (politics, economics, society, culture and the environment) after 30 years, and introduce national June 4 decryption files.
On 15 April 1989, Hu Yaobang, the former General Secretary of the CCP, died of illness in Beijing. Big posters of condolence to Hu appeared at various universities in Beijing. Later, the content of these posters changed to discussion of the political situation. The commemorative activities gradually evolved into a democracy movement under slogan 'against corruption, demanding democracy' which spread throughout the country. The 'anti-corruption' slogan put forward by the 1989 democracy movement was the same as that of the anti-corruption drive of Xi Jinping. However, not only did the Chinese government then fail to respond, it bloodily suppressed the student movement. We must take history as a mirror and explore the significance of establishing a fair and just society with students.
The Special Exhibition welcomes schools and groups to make appointments for visits. The visit time can be arranged according to the needs of schools and groups. Interested parties please send the reply slip to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to the Alliance at 2770 6083.
