Bao Tong, former political aide to the late ousted premier Zhao Ziyang, served a seven-year jail term in the wake of the 1989 crackdown on the Tiananmen Square student movement. Since his release, he has remained under continual surveillance and frequent house arrest at his home in Beijing. He spoke to RFA's Mandarin Service in a recent interview about the effect on China of late supreme leader Deng Xiaoping's decision to send in the troops 28 years ago, which, he says, is still being felt today:
RFA: Why has there been no resolution to this part of China's recent history, nearly three decades later?
Bao Tong: The leaders won't deal with this issue, but the Chinese people already have dealt with it. Most people know pretty much what really happened back then, so this has long since been resolved ...though not on the surface. The real purpose of resolving this issue would be to break open a number of fundamental issues that exist in China today ... [Tiananmen] is one key to the really big questions we face today, but there are many others. But it can't be avoided, because if Mao Zedong turned China into a country where no-one speaks out, Deng Xiaoping turned it into a country that is now helplessly mired in corruption.
