I have heard that in China, all internet and TV stations have been shut down, as the government doesn't want any protesting going on about tianemen square. Is it true?

Not sure if the internet and TV stations have been closed down... the incident has always been censored from Chinese media anyway. It is considered a taboo topic, apparently.

I could be wrong, but I think tomorrow, the 6th, is also a pretty important day in history...
Something to do with some folks getting ashore in France...

Never forget, always remember, honour those who took part...
