Thousands of protesters in Tiananmen Square. They have banners and flags and headbands. Most are young students. Government officials watch from rooftops. One man uses a megaphone and the crowd cheers. Gorbachev greets Chinese official off of plane. Famous shot of a lone young student standing in front of a line of tanks, blocking their path. The tank tries to go around him but he refuses to get out of the way. He climbs up on top of the tank. Crowd in the streets, more tanks and convoy of military trucks in the street.
