To capture the neglected substratum of politics during the 1989 upheaval in China is difficult, but not impossible. The paper draws on the sources of handbills and manifestos from citizens' organizations, publications and interviews of political activists who have left China, and official accounts published immediately after the military suppression to describe the pattern of popular political organization, and the mentalities that accompanied it. To anticipate the conclusion, we shall see that these movements represent a brand of politics quite at odds with party reformism and student and intellectual visions of democracy.
