There was particular focus on China’s fight against the corona as the country’s Communist Party on Monday began celebrating its 100-year history.
President Xi Jinping led the loud applause at Beijing’s Bird’s Nest Stadium, which marked the start of the celebration.
The event takes place under strict security measures and it is not broadcast on television.
The big party culminates on Thursday, July 1, with the Communist Party marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the party.
It is the Communist Party that has shaped and created the history of modern China, and which has secured the country’s status as a superpower.
At the extravagant show that heralded the festivities, the country’s history and former leaders were hailed – from Mao Zedong to Xi Jinping.
It happened on big screens and by carefully staged processions with hundreds of trumpets and greetings from Chinese astronauts in space.
Among the disasters and political crises that the country has gone through and which were passed over in silence are famine, the purges during the Cultural Revolution, the defeat of pro-democracy students in Tiananmen Square in 1989 and of pro-democracy groups in Hong Kong.
But what was highlighted by dancers and artists in triumphal processions were theatrical retellings of the founding of the Communist Party in Shanghai in 1921 and Mao’s Lange March.
A particularly dedicated tribute was directed to China’s ‘overcoming’ of covid-19.
President Xi has carefully ensured that the pandemic that began in central China’s city of Wuhan has become a victory for the party organization and for the Chinese special resistance.
Today, the virus is practically gone within the country’s borders, and the country’s economy is on the road to recovery. This is in stark contrast to the many shutdowns, high death rates and economic crises that have shaken the world since the beginning of 2020.
Any form of opposition to the Communist Party is quickly suppressed or removed by the state apparatus, which maintains strict control over all information – especially on the Internet.
