    Seven weeks of peaceful protests in Beijing's Tiananmen Square were violently ended the People's Liberation Army, which murdered hundreds of people following a declaration of martial law. The protests were in response to rapid economic development and social changes in post-Mao China. The protests reflected anxieties about the country's future in the popular consciousness and among the political elite.
