Removing the pillar of shame won’t remove our memory of the Tiananmen Massacre

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

An iconic piece of public art that had been on display at the University of Hong Kong campus for 24 years - the Pillar of Shame - was demolished on Thursday the 23rd. The Chinese University’s Goddess of Democracy and the June 4th memorial at Lingnam University, suffered the same fate of being demolished and removed on the 24th. Within 24 hrs, three crucial June 4th reminders disappeared overnight. However, such actions would not take away our history, our will, and our fighting spirit. With the aid of technology, we continue to memorialize this shameful incident, with our online June 4th museum.
