[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”105774″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

In 1989, student-led demonstrations took place in Beijing, China – commonly referred to as the Tiananmen Square protests.  Thirty years on, state censorship is an increasing concern in China once more as the government uses new tactics to restrict speech.

 Join Chinese authors Xinran (The Good Women of China) and Karoline Kan (Under Red Skies: The Life and Times of a Chinese Millennial) for a discussion moderated by Index on Censorship magazine editor Rachael Jolley to explore some of today’s most pressing issues in China past and present.
