Chinese dissident, one of the four top leaders of the 1989 pro-democracy movement that was crushed by China's army. At the time of the notorious 6/04/1989 crackdown in Tiananmen Square, he had escaped. He moved to Brandeis University, then to Boston University with his story of the uprising.

The first of those to return to China from exile, he was arrested 9/01/1992 when he made a trip to see his mother. A Harvard academic who joined him on his return to Beijing was expelled from the country and reported that Shen should be released soon.
