STILL UNSTOPPABLE AFTER 70 YEARS: CHINA'S COMMUNIST LIBERATION CHANGED THE WORLD FOREVER, FOR THE BETTER.

PROCLAMATION OF THE CENTRAL PEOPLE'S GOVERNMENT OF THE PRC
October 1st, 1949

The people throughout China have been plunged into bitter suffering and tribulations since the Chiang Kai-shek [Jiang Jieshi] Kuomintang [Guomindang] reactionary government betrayed the fatherland, colluded with imperialists, and launched the counter-revolutionary war. Fortunately, our People's Liberation Army, backed by the whole nation, has been fighting heroically and selflessly to defend the territorial sovereignty of our homeland, to protect the people's lives and property, to relieve the people of their sufferings, and to struggle for their rights, and it eventually wiped out the reactionary troops and overthrew the reactionary rule of the Nationalist government.
