Throughout the 20th century, Tiananmen Square was the epicenter for many political events: the May 4th Movement of 1919; Mao Zedong's proclamation of the People's Republic of China in 1949; and annual mass military displays on subsequent National Days until 1959.

The historic student standoff of 1989 was sparked by the death of a pro-democracy and anti-corruption official, Hu Yaobang. More than 100,000 protesters converged to mourn Hu's death, but they lacked a unified cause or leadership. The so-named June 4th Movement lasted seven weeks, until tanks cleared Tiananmen Square leaving many protesters dead or severely injured.

Following the conflict, the government conducted widespread arrests of protesters and their supporters, cracked down on other protests around China, banned the foreign press from the country and strictly controlled coverage of the events in the PRC press.
