Undying Conviction: We Will Remember June 4th
The Tiananmen Massacre and the subsequent crackdown on the 1989 democracy movement in China shocked the entire world. International communities rose up to denounce the atrocities of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and stood in solidarity with the peaceful protesters, students, academics, workers and citizens who strived against the totalitarian regime in China.
In June 1989 after the Tiananmen Massacre, members of the Chinese community in Metro Vancouver organized and established the “Vancouver Society In Support of Democratic Movement” (VSSDM).
For 30 years, “We Will Remember June 4” has become the undying conviction and motto of VSSDM. Every year, rain or shine, VSSDM holds events to commemorate and honour those who died fighting for democracy in China. These events include Wreath Laying at the statue of the Goddess of Democracy in UBC and in Forest Lawn Memorial Park. Also, every year on June 4th, Democracy Walk and Candlelight Vigil are held.
