Remembering Tiananmen Square in Legos, Photos and Memes

What does China's Children’s Holiday have to do with the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre? They are only 3 days apart. And so the site NetEase.com combined the two. As part of a slideshow of nostalgic children's toys, the Chinese web portal presented a Lego version of the anonymous "Tank Man" who was famously depicted blocking tanks with his body near Tiananmen on June 4, 1989.

This is just one example of many creative protests that are popping up around the Web as well as on the ground in mainland China, which Kevin Tang has collected here on BuzzFeed

The 24th anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre is tomorrow. Stories of the victims can also be found at the site TiananmenMother.org
