From Tiananmen to Tahrir

Saturday, Feb 26, 2011

Multiple unarmed protesters were shot by their government when marching toward Bahrain's Pearl Square. Some have renamed the square to Tahrir Square to commemorate Cairo. A striking image of protesters staring down tanks in the same place of the shooting brings back images of China's Tienanmen Square.

Except the tanks are U.S.-made M1 Abrams tanks.
