The Weeks before June 4: Wu Renhua’s Introduction

« previous June-4 post

The following is a translation from Wu Renhua‘s Major Daily Events, Tian An Men 1989 (八九天安门事件逐日大事记). In a few paragraphs, Wu explains how the document evolved.

From April 15 to June 9, 2011, on Twitter, I reviewed, on a daily basis, the 1989 Tian An Men Incident, and this chronological document has been compiled on the basis of the daily material compiled then.

2011年4月15日至6月9日,我在推特(twitter.com)逐日回顾八九天安门事件,这份《八九天安门事件大事记》就是根据逐日回顾的文字资料整理成文。

I began studying classical literature as a major, at Beijing University, in spring 1982,  successively obtained the degrees of a bachelor and a master’s degree, was trained in textual research and editing, bibliography and other relevant professional skills. In 1989, when I was at the China University of Political Science and Law Ancient Legal Books Research Institute, I experienced the Tian An Men Incident myself: the students’ demonstrations, the hungerstriking petitioners, and the whole military clearance process of the square.

1982年春,我入读北京大学古典文献专业,先后获学士、硕士学位,是受过考据学、版本学、目录学等专业训练的文献学者。1989年,我任职中国政法大学法律古籍整理研究所,是八九天安门事件的亲身经历者,经历了学生游行示威、绝食请愿、天安门广场武力清场的整个过程。

In February 1990, I left China, and fled across the sea. In May that year, I wrote a long essay, “Last Scene of the Tian An Men Incident”, to record the complete process of the Tian An Men Square clearing.

1990年2月,我跳海出走,离开中国。当年5月,发表了根据亲身经历所写的数万字文章《天安门事件的最后一幕》,完整记录了天安门广场的清场过程。

Over the years, I kept gathering and researching material concerning the 1989 Tian An Men Incident, published “Inside Stories about the sanguinary Clearance of Tian An Men Square” (天安门血腥清场内幕) in May 2007 and “The Martial-Law Troops in the 6-4 Incident” 六四事件中的戒严部队 in May 2009. Currently, I’m writing on ” The Whole Story of the 1989Tian An Men Incident” (tentative title).

多年来,我一直在搜集、研究八九天安门事件的资料,2007年5月出版了《天安门血腥清场内幕》一书,2009年5月出版了《六四事件中的戒严部队》一书。目前正在写作《八九天安门事件始末》(暂定名)一书。
