On January 3, 2008, at the China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing, Professor Xiao Han held his last class for the winter semester. In defiance of the Communist Party, the topic was the Tiananmen Square Massacre on June 4, 1989.
The Professor told everyone, “Many of them [the college students] left their blood behind on the square, the square on which only one dead body [Mao Zedong] now lies. The blood shed back then cannot possibly be washed away and will outlast any tangible tombstone.”
To future judges and attornyes, Prof. Xiao lectured on, “I hope you keep a lively, independent and free soul. Particularly I would like to wish everyone of you, despite the filthy and degenerated environment, please hold up your unblemished integrity.”
His lecture transcript entitled, “The Last Class: How Should We Live Our Lives?” was posted online and spread instantly among Chinese Internet users.
