Mission and Vision
The permanent June 4th Museum opened at the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Its purpose is to re-enact the peaceful pro-democracy, anti-corruption movement, the Beijing government’s brutal crackdown, and the subsequent denunciations that reverberated across the global Chinese community. The Communist Party of China has sought to wipe out the people’s memory of the bloodshed and halt any discussions of the subject. In Hong Kong, where we still enjoy freedom of expression, we have the responsibility to preserve history, to impart truths, to awaken our collective conscience, to vindicate the movement, and to spark reflections on the future of democracy in China. The memorial is thus a testimony to the Alliance’s resolve to achieve its five goals: release of the dissidents, rehabilitation of the June Fourth movement, accountability for the massacre, an end to one-party dictatorship and a democratic China.
The Memorial seeks to combine commemoration, education, reflection and participation, so that these historical truths presented here may inspire visitors to feel, think and take part in the democratic movement.
May we see, in the near future, the Goddess of Democracy’s return to Tiananmen Square and a permanent June 4th Museum in Beijing.
About June 4th Museum
The June 4th Museum, established by The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (The Hong Kong Alliance), opened in late April 2014, at the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre. By showing us the whole history and relevant materials of the Massacre in the memorial museum, The Hong Kong Alliance wants to safeguard justice and conscience as well as to continue the spirit of June Fourth and the universal values that the students espoused in that year.
We hope that members of the public can be better informed of this Incident, and the message that the Incident should never be forgotten is specifically disseminated to our younger generations, so that the spirit of democracy should be passed on to them.
The Memorial Museum is composed of several parts, including: exhibition corridor, audio-visual room, book corner, photo-taking area and souvenir shop.
The main theme of the exhibits in the exhibition corridor is “Never Forget the June Fourth and Awaken the Conscience”, and the first special theme which is entitled “The Mutable and Immutable : Discourse on the June 4th Massacre Over The Last 25 Years”, where well- captioned black/white photos can facilitate visitors to understand the history and the development of this Incident.
In the Audio-visual room, two documentaries are played, namely “June Fourth” and “Tiananmen Mother”, where abound the bloodshed and the passion in the images.
* Movie Synopsis & Timetable
The Book corner showcases books, magazines and newspapers concerning the June Fourth Incident, which are preserved as a basis of verification of what happened in that year.
A replica of the Goddess of Democracy statue, 6 feet 4 inches high, is erected in the Photo-taking area, which let you preserve the spirit of democracy by the photo-taking.
Books and souvenirs about the June Fourth Incident are sold in the souvenir shop, and we believe that a T-shirt, a badge or even a pamphlet can revive people’s memories of this Incident.
