7:05 pm
protesters have requested aid. there were also very political protests many asked for freedom. they asked for a rule of law for human rights, and for those political aspects, the chinese government has made more than clear that it will repress those claims and it will counter them with a heavy police presence as can be seen here in beijing. but also in other cities and are really a campaign of intimidation that stay with us are fabulous. wait, we're going to talk about another story coming out of china. and that's the death of the former leader jang jam been at the age of $96.00. and he came to power just after the massacre of pro democracy activists in town, him and square in 1989 and introduced economic reforms that turned china into a manufacturing a power house junction and also oversold the return of hong kong from the u. k. and macau, from portugal, the 2008 beijing olympics for china on the world stage. john was also criticized over the repression of fallon gull,
7:06 pm
religious or minority. so fabulous craft rome invasion and clearly a very important figure in chinese history. yes, i mean, i think he's leaving him very ambivalent legacy, but also a legacy as an economic reformer that until this day actually has not been fully appreciated. in my opinion, he came to power in 1993 as a president, and at that time he was made mostly seen as a compromise solution as a barrel credit. but that turned out to be a false assessment. so politically, he will be remembered and criticized for the very violent and correct on the file on gong religious sect and are on the, at the same time, economically. he was a reformer under his presidency, china ur joint, the world trade organization, which was a huge milestone in the economic rise of china. and what i find really very interesting is that a while he was in power actually gentlemen, was not particularly popular, but now there's a huge nostalgia for him. and i think the reason is because his personality,
7:07 pm
his political leadership is quite different than the leadership that we have. now i give you one idea. i mean gentlemen, he was a person in public appearances. he can be seen, you know, or singing elvis presley songs, or when he met the philippine president. he was actually on a 60 minute interview show with the legendary u. s. to a television journalist mike wallace and was quoting abraham lincoln, he, i gave her a press conference for journalists where they could ask critical questions. i mean, all those things are seem very unheard of an unimaginable now. and the youth really thinks while what a leader in he exposed himself to journalist question, he was really, he showed very genuine emotions and he seemed very close to the people. that's quite a contrast to what we have now. right. and there had been rumors of his death for some time. i think it said it's interesting that the announcement has been made during these a cove in protest. i could his death be useful to either side. and in this current controversy, yet there are many ways of interpretation. so under,
7:08 pm
at one hand, it was also the death of a chinese politician in $9089.00, which in turn was leading to the t. n. m. and protest, i mean, the biggest protest movement which was correct down a violent in $9089.00. and now we have, of course, again, a political movement, a protest movement which is not as big as before. but i mean, it's still quite historic and of course are there could be some nervousness within the leadership to that gentleman. death could again, you know, spark some morning which could, you know, bring the protest or to the street. but then there are also some other people who said maybe jammed them in was already dead for several days. and the leadership only announced that now because they want to distract some attention from the protest movement. and they want to use it for their purpose. it's really hard to tell me this is all speculation. like if i were in fabric quadra in beijing, i will take a look at some more stories making news around the world. now,
