20 years after the Tiananmen Square protests

The power of photojournalism cannot be denied in this picture. It set the tone and gave a symbolic brand to the protests in the Square that day in 1989.
Today is the twentieth anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests. This photo will remain a symbol of the protests. The image gets its power from juxtaposition of one human against four military tanks. Each of those tanks symbolize the power and strength of the military. 4 metal tanks agianst 1 sack of protoplasm - Wow. If you look closely, there is a hatch open and a solider peeking out of the first tank. This is probably what saved this protester on this day from becoming a stain on the pavement.
Read your history and remember this day.
