The primary objective of this movement was to clarify for the proper democratic ideals that would be followed in the country during a time of general unrest and people did not want an autocratic government or one that was steeped in centralized power as the gang of four had demonstrated to be at that time. There was a strong anti-government sentiment that was echoed in this movement. The Pro-Democracy Movement started in 1989. It was considered to the manifestation of the movement that had stemmed as an aftermath of the death of Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-tung) in 1976. In 1989, Hu Yaobang, the general secretary of Communist party of China died. This was the start signal of this movement. On 17th April, after the demise of Hu Yaobang, 700 students and teachers marched form their university campus to the Tiananmen Square. This eventually gained publicity and was echoed around the word (Bond). This was initially started as a student demonstration that eventually caused regime change. This student demonstration was eventually bolstered by the support of the trade union movement. Ultimately, the objective of this movement was to gain democracy and to end the corruption that had pervaded the government. There was a growing disdain over the actions of the government. These efforts were taken by the people to show their resentment against the operations of the government and to bring change in the operations.
