South China Morning Post interviewed Fang Zheng* in Hong Kong on 2 June 2012 (SCMP, 3.6.2012)

*Fang said in the interview in Hong Kong. "...On June 4, 1989, I was among a group of students leaving the Tiananmen Square...I rushed back to pick up a female student who had fainted when I realised that a row of tanks was racing towards us, I pushed the girl towards a guard rail by the pavement, but a tank ran over my legs and dragged me for some distance..." (SCMP, 3.6.2012)

Fang Zheng talked to some 180,000 attendees at the vigil, "...Hong Kong is really an ocean of love and conscience. It was stunning to see the sea of candle light... I have to thank you all on behalf of the victims..." (SCMP, 5 June 2012)

Many thanks to my friend who sent me the photos taken at the vigil which I missed this year.

23 Years on, we have not forgotten...
