Tiananmen Square Travel photo copyrighted by: BeijingChinaWorld
In the middle of Tiananmen Square sits the Renmin Yinxiong Jinian Bei, or Monument to the People's Heroes, which can be seen in the foreground. Dedicated to the men and women who died in the struggles to make China an independent nation in the century before the Communists came to power,
it has acted as a lightning rod for dissent. After the start of the Falungong
demonstrations, it was cordoned off from the public.
