This is China Today!
China formally kicked off its mass celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of PRC with a 60-gun salute that rung out across Beijing’s historic Tiananmen Square on October 1, 2009. Hundreds of thousands of participants marched past Tiananmen Square in costume or uniform, with floats and dancers mingling with soldiers and military hardware. Collected here are 39 photos of the once-in-a-decade National Day parade in Beijing, and of others commemorating the anniversary elsewhere.
We are amazed that this anniversary received almost no news coverage in the United States! In order to continue building a better understanding with improved relationships with China through Wang Foundation’s SSLP by college students. Hence, we place these photos here for you and American students to see.
