Wen Wei Po Does Two Things to Mourn Beijing Victims

Source: Wen wei po ( Hong Kong) ( June 5, 1989): 1; FBIS, June 5, p. 94.

All staff at Wen wei po, who were extremely indignant at the savage act of the Chinese Government, which massacred the patriotic students and residents in Beijing, held an emergency meeting last night. They first stood in silent tribute for the compatriots who had been killed and then decided to take the following two actions:
A flag will be lowered to half staff and a strip of black gauze will be hung on the door to mourn the dead.
There will be a charity sale by Wen wei po today, and the funds thus raised will be donated to the Chinese Red Cross Society to save the students and residents who have been wounded in this incident.

At the same time, an elegiac couplet will be hung on the gate of our office building today. It reads: Grief over the death of thousands of people in Beijing who have been savagely massacred while striving for democracy; hatred for a handful of beasts who have betrayed the people and who should pay their blood debt.
