Hu Yaobang memorial
Figure 212. Hu Yaobang (胡耀邦, 1915 - 1989-04-15) memorial at the Monument to the People’s Heroes (人民英雄纪念碑). Hu’s mourning was the start of Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989 (六四事件). The central banners read left: ttps://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/中央美术学院[中央美院]敬挽 (Condolences from the Central Academy of Fine Arts) and right: 何处招魂 (where we conjure the spirit of the dead, a refernce to some poem: https://zhidao.baidu.com/question/1964020062838200140.html by Qu Yuan (屈原, 340-278 BC)) TODO are there any quotes showing his liberal position? If we find one let’s add to the image side-by-side. Source.
