Beijing Spring

Beijing Spring is the term for a brief period of political liberalization in China which occurred in 1977 and 1978. The name was derived from Prague Spring, an analogous event which occurred in Czechoslovakia in 1968.

During Beijing Spring, the general public was allowed unusual freedom to criticize the governement. Most of this criticism was directed at the government's behavior during the Cultural Revolution. Much of this criticism was centered on the Democracy Wall Movement.
