Tiananmen and China’s Future: The View Five Years Later
Yan Jiaqi, a prominent Chinese political scientist and member of the Chinese Communist party, became a leader of the Beijing Autonomous Federation of Intellectuals during the student demonstrations at Tiananmen. He later escaped to France and was elected head of the Paris-based Front for a Democratic China.
Wang Juntao was deputy editor-in-chief of the independent Economic Studies Weekly and a former central committee member of the Communist Youth League of China. Sentenced to a 13-year prison term for “reactionary” activities, he was released earlier this year because of health reasons; he is currently a visiting scholar at the Fairbank Center.
