71 years ago, just as the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japan was about to win a great victory, Comrade Mao Zedong delivered a speech on "Yu Gong Yi Shan", calling on the whole party and the people of the whole country to make up their minds, not to sacrifice, to overcome all difficulties, and to win victory. Today, 68 years ago, just as the war of liberation was about to achieve full victory and New China was about to be established, Comrade Mao Zedong issued a New Year's message, calling on the people of the whole party and the whole country to unite and be united to carry out the revolution to the end.
An era has the theme of an era, and a generation has its mission. On the New Long March, every Chinese is a protagonist and has a responsibility. Let us vigorously promote the spirit of Yugong to move mountains, and vigorously carry forward the spirit of carrying the revolution to the end. In the historical tide of progress in China and the world, we will unswervingly push our cause forward to the other side.
Thank you all.
