WASHINGTON, D.C. (KFVS) - It has been 30 years since Tiananmen Square Massacre.

Officials with the office of Senator Josh Hawley said this was a time when peaceful protesters were killed in the public eye by the Chinese government.

Now U.S. Senator Josh Hawley is asking his colleagues to keep pressure on the Communist Party in China for its ongoing human rights and sovereignty violations.

"Thirty years after the massacre at Tiananmen Square, the Communist Party of China remains committed to imposing its will not only on the Chinese people, but also on those of its neighbors,” said Hawley. “It has not learned from one of the worst atrocities in its modern history, and today, the United States has an obligation to speak out.”

There are two steps Senator Hawley said he is taking to highlight some of these violations.

Step one, an introduction of a resolution that reiterates the United States’ support of Taiwan against China.

Step two, a letter to the administration regarding recent reports of the Chinese government’s facilitation of the trafficking of North Korean women and children.
