Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the 30th Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Massacre:

"Thirty years ago today, the Chinese Communist Party's tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square, killing thousands of peaceful protestors seeking freedom. We'll never forget the bravery and sacrifice of those Chinese students. The Communist Party hasn't changed in the intervening decades. It has only updated its tactics. In addition to brute force, it now uses digital surveillance, mass detention, brainwashing, and other Orwellian methods to crush the Chinese people. The United States will continue to oppose the evils of the Communist Party."
