June 4th

“The propagandist is a man who canalises an already existing stream. In a land where there is no water, he digs in vain.”

Aldous Huxley

To celebrate June 4th I went to a great exhibition at the British Library called Propaganda: Power and Persuasion.

Last year on June 4th I was in China using a VPN to post about Tiananmen Square…here in the UK this year there was barely a mention in the press and on TV about anything related to Tank Man.
