This may be one of the most captivating moments in world history.

In Beijing in 1989 students began to ask the government for a more democratic society. In thier protests the Chinese government slaughtered thousands. Litterally opening fire on the students. The next day this man (still unidentified) was on his way home from buying groceries and came across a Chinese show of force, threatening the protesting students. Instead of walking around the brigade he kept on his way and eventually stopped in front of the tank. Then he climbed on the tank and told the driver to get out of his city and to leave him alone. On other versions of the tape you can see people grabbing him and pulling him away. He imediately disapeared. Its believed he was taken by the secret police and executed.
