Tank Man

A few minutes before this famous moment happened 20 years ago...

this was happening.

It's a photo taken by Terri Jones and clearly shows Tank Man on the left and the tanks on the right. This photo has rarely been seen outside of the photographer's close friends until now.

Although no one knows for sure, it is thought Tank Man was executed after being arrested.

It sort of puts faked auto cards and the usual Beckett bullshit into perspective.
