Quote: First they came…



Tiananmen Square: Tank Man

First they came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

Then they came for the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
I remained silent;
I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Martin Niemöller

    I have watched a very interesting documentary about the Tank Man of the Tiananmen Sqaure, and just wanted to mention that they never found out who this guy is. A large number of critics claim that he was kidnapped by people from the Chinese government.

    Not if we choose to let it happen. We have the right of revolution.
