No, Not Ducks!

China bans all references to ‘Big Yellow Duck’ in lead up to Tiananmen Square anniversary | Information, Gadgets, Mobile Phones News & Reviews | News.com.au.

June 4,  1989, was the original protest, shut down by Chinese authorities in a most brutal and oppressive manner.  Although most Chinese are unaware of the massacre, today’s anniversary brought a surprise of sorts to China’s Internet :

Ducks instead of tanks.  Authorities were quick to remove the image from any site it popped up on behind the “Great Firewall.”

The ban on the popular duck comes as Chinese police are blocking the gate of a cemetery housing victims of the Tiananmen crackdown on its 24th anniversary, part of a sweeping annual effort to bar commemorations of the event.
