National Day in China: Declaration of the People’s Republic

1 October it is, when Mao Zedong declared in his Xiangtan (Hunan) accent the people’s republic.

Every year, Tiananmen Square is filled with tens of thousands of young people, who sleep in the square overnight so they are ready at daybreak to commemorate the event at a very simple flag-raising ceremony. Mao is clearly alive in the people’s republic today.
