    Even though it was well over 15 years ago that it happened, this guy is still a hero of mine.

    Yea, I remember that well. The man had courage, and a cause he believed in. Does anyone know his name or what happened to him since then?

    Unfortunatley his name is not known which is a real pity.

    We see all type of examples of bravery today, but my mind just boggles at what it was like for him to stand in front of that tank for nearly half an hour where he succeded in holding up the convoy, who went on to kill a heap of unarmed citizens.

    I stand amazed at his example of bravery, I hope that I would have the same bravery if I was ever put in a situation like that!

    Here is a great article about the whole thing and the later protests that partially succeded.
