... the government of China doesn't claim that nothing happened. There is an official narrative, including the claim that soldiers working for the government of China were victims of protesters.
Given that the government of China acknowledges that something happened on June 4th, 1989, and given that there are living eyewitnesses who were there, what is the legal basis for the government of China to stifle discussion of that topic?
For example, suppose that some people decide that research and study and formulating questions is too risky on the topic of what happened on June 4th, 1989. Nevertheless, there is an official narrative, so people should be able to memorize the official narrative word-for-word and hold competitions reciting that narrative. Also, students in all grades in school in China could refrain from answering any questions on examinations in mathematics, unless they were already provided with an answer to exactly the same question, and they could compete to recite the official answer, word-for-word.
Would such actions risk penalties under laws of China? Are people in China required by law to go beyond repeating the officially correct answer to questions that they have already seen in mathematics, but forbidden to go beyond the official narrative on the topic of events in Tiananmen Square on June 4th, 1989?
