Freedom Road celebrates 65th anniversary of Chinese revolution in Minneapolis

By staff

Minneapolis, MN – On Oct. 25, 30 people gathered here to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Chinese revolution. The event included a film showing of Founding of a Republic and discussion of the meaning and importance of the socialist revolution in China.

The movie was made in 2009 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Chinese revolution. It’s a Chinese movie with a star-studded cast that portrays the five years from the end of World War II in 1945 until the triumph of the revolution on Oct. 1, 1949. The movie shows key military battles and political struggles led by the Communist Party of China in their ascent to power.

Before the movie there was a presentation to add political context about the terrible conditions that peasants and workers lived under in China before the revolution, and the tremendous gains made with socialism. The event was sponsored by Freedom Road Socialist Organization.
