Considering what their beautiful regime had done the day before I dont think we have to speculate too much on what happened to the man. Big set though indeed and a tip of the cap and drink to "Tank Man"

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

Iconic pic.

Dramatic representation of power and determination there - not referring to the tanks.

Good restraint by the driver of the tank as well, who probably had full authorization to run him over.

I still remember when this protest was being broadcast... I was so thankful to be in the US.

40 years ago (yesterday) was the infamous 10 cent beer night in Cleveland.

 

Such a powerful picture.  Very rare that a still photograph has that kind of meaning and power.

I remember watching this on TV, but was too young to understand what was going on.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
