Freedom House's "Freedom in the World" report was released, and China's abysmal performance remains unchanged from last year. Freedom House uses a 1-7 scale, with 1 being "free" and 7 being "not free." Last year China scored 6 for civil liberties and 7 for political freedoms. The combined score, 6.5 is the same for this year, maintaining China's status as one of the most oppressive regimes in the Asia-Pacific region. Refer below to the article from Radio Free Asia:

We have produced a useful one-page FAQ/Overview of the Tiananmen Massacre and protests. It includes a summary, and a compressed chronology that highlights the major events that culminated in the June 4, 1989 crackdown by the People's Liberation Army.
Yesterday we posted links to two high quality documentaries on the Tiananmen Movement and Massacre. To accompany these documentaries, PBS has produced four lessons plans (including worksheets and other materials) for high school teachers. The main page for these lesson plans can be found here. We are also posting the documents themselves on the blog--use the button below to download the lesson plans.
