Cotton Statement on the Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre

Washington, D.C – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement on the 32nd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre:

“32 years ago today, the world saw the true face of the Chinese Communist Party. Communism has only ever been maintained through murder, terror, and brutality—all three were on full display in Tiananmen Square. But through the darkness of repression and smoke of gunfire, there was also the courage and nobility of a people that dream of freedom. We remember those brave souls today and honor their memory and sacrifice.”
