"Six Four" - "23" - "Candle" - "Never Forget." These words does not exists on the Chinese side of the internet.

In case you have forgotten, in the middle ages before Twitter and Facebook "revolutionized" the "way we interact" or before the "Arab Spring" brought fresh winds of "democracy" to the "suppressed" people of the world the fire  it was still possible to gather hundreds of thousands of people around the common cause of ending repression.
