Chinese court tries man who planned Tiananmen protest
BEIJING (AFP) - A man who planned a protest on the anniversary of China's Tiananmen square crackdown went on trial on Sunday for "inciting state subversion", his lawyer said.
Gu Yimin denied the charge at the hearing in the eastern city of Changshu, said Liu Weiguo, one of his lawyers.
State prosecutors said Gu's posting of pictures of the 1989 crackdown, and his application to stage a protest on its anniversary this year, amounted to "inciting state subversion", according to Mr Liu.
"There is nothing illegal about posting a photograph of a genuine incident," the lawyer said, adding that the hearing lasted around four hours.
