Is there any hope of democratic development in China?


By Chloe Chiu


HKSYU, 27 Mar – The ‘Tiananmen Square Protests’, also known as the ‘June Fourth Incident’ caused fatal effects in 1989. A series of vigorous demonstrations happened in and near Beijing Tiananmen Square in the People's Republic of China.


According to the document of Tiananmen, the government killed more than 2600 people including students and residents. Due to the PRC pressure, the statistics has changed to 727 by Xinhua News Agency. People strongly citiicized the PRC using tanks to cope with innocent students and felt disappointed to the democratic system in their motherland.


When most of us are totally depressed, David Schlesinger, the Chairman of Thomson Reuters mentioned that the restriction of press in Mainland China is now improving in the assembly of HKSYU. He showed his relief of China development within these years.


In China, reporting sensative political issue freely is no longer an easy task for journalists. Since the goverenment suppressed the freedom of speech, journalists not only have difficulties fulfilling their job, but also take the risk of being sent to the jail.


Since the ‘June Fourth Incident’, the government totally restricted the information reveal from every broadcasting company. It led to a final: The same content, same idea and story about the issue. “What Xinhua said, everybody else followed.” said Schlesinger.


Though, Schlesinger held firm to belief that China will be better than before and everything will improve. “There are more people discussing different sentitive topics on Weibo and media were repoting daringly,” he said. He pointed out that there was a significant difference as his stand was proofed.


David Schlesinger is the Honorary President of the International Network of Street Papers (INSP), a board member of the Committee to Protect Journalists, a board member of the Thomson Reuters Foundation, and chairman of the board of the Danenberg Oberlin-in-London Program. He is on the Steering Committee for Oxford University's Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism and for Tsinghua University's School of Journalism and Communications.


“As Editor-in-Chief, David Schlesinger has preserved this venerable organization’s core journalistic values while enthusiastically embracing the possibilities and challenges of the digital age, and we are proud to honor him for this achievement.”said Peter Price, the CEO of NATAS.
