Muxidi Station (Chinese: 木樨地站; pinyin: Mùxīdì Zhàn) is a station on Line 1 of the Beijing Subway. It will connect with Line 16 and Line 18 in the future.[1][2]

Suspended[edit]

During troop movements in Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, a lot of people were killed at Muxidi. Muxidi Station is often suspended about June 4 these years. For example:

  • On June 3, 2013, A1 Exit of Muxidi Station was closed on the grounds of repairing.[3]
  • On June 2, 2014, Beijing Subway declared that A1 Exit and A2 Exit of Muxidi Station will be closed from June 3 (Tuesday) to a future date via Weibo.[3]
  • On June 2, 2015, Beijing Subway declared close of doors again. Reporters from Ming Pao found that they can't reply that Weibo post and other replies are invisible.[4]
  • On June 3, 2016, Beijing Mass Transit Railway Operation Corporation Limited declared that A1 Exit and A2 Exit will be closed from Today 15:00 (June 3) to a future date via Weibo. This message can not be replied.[5]
  • On June 3, 2017, A1 Exit and A2 Exit is closed. Beijing Mass Transit Railway Operation Corporation Limited did't post any message but made a station broadcast on the grounds of "Temporary construction". [6]
  • On June 1, 2018, Beijing Mass Transit Railway Operation Corporation Limited declared that A1 Exit and A2 Exit will be closed from June 3, 2018 12:00 to last train of Muxidi Station via Weibo.[7]
  • On June 2, 2019, Beijing Mass Transit Railway Operation Corporation Limited declared that A1 Exit and A2 Exit will be closed from June 3 10:00 to a future date via Weibo.[8]

Chinese activist Hu Jia believes that meanings of these measures are to prevent Tiananmen Mothers members from eulogizing the dead during the protest.[3]
