China in the News

imageTiananmen Square has been in the news again lately, with headlines and video of a car crash at the iconic portrait of Chairman Mao.

What really struck in these reports was not the accident itself, but the fact that the Chinese police scrambled to erase evidence of the accident within a few short hours of its occurrence.

This reminds us of our experience in the same square this past summer as a marker of the power and paranoia that marks China’s politics, past and present.

Plus que ça change…
