Just after 8:30 on November 16, a group of people appeared in the South Square of the Auditorium of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
Sometimes they gather together to chat with each other, and sometimes look at the angle and take a photo with the building behind them, and the excitement overflows. "Let me take a picture. Be sure to take the emblem on the back." "Eggplant——", written behind the red banner of Beijing Institute of Technology, more than 50 teachers and students "freeze" in the National People's Political Consultative Conference Auditorium Conference emblem.
On this day, the National People's Political Consultative Conference organs held the first public open day event. In addition to the appointment, teachers and students from Beijing Institute of Technology, as well as teachers and students from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, School of International Relations, staff members of residents' committees of financial streets and residents As well as nearly 200 representatives of the general public, including retired cadres of the Beijing Alumni Association of the PLA Academy of Military Engineering. With curiosity and expectations for the CPPCC, they climbed up the steps of the south gate of the auditorium. From the founding of the country to the new mission of the CPPCC, they started this "negotiation journey" across time and space.
■ Walk into the courtyard from outside the hospital, from the books to the books
The reporter saw Lu Yuzhen in the crowd because she wore a red "armband" on her left arm. As we all know, it was a "volunteer" sign for residents on the streets of Beijing to help maintain law and order.
Lu Yuzhen smiled and said that she was "Aunt Xicheng", and that the area where they helped maintain order was the seat of Financial Street, the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. Lu Yuzhen pointed to the sisters around her and said that in the past, every time the CPPCC National Committee had important activities, especially during the annual National Two Sessions, the volunteers "watched" under the magnolia tree on the street. "I did not expect today that we can walk into the courtyard from outside the courtyard, experience the scene of members meeting, and have the opportunity to understand what the CPPCC is and do."
A few aunts, you say a word to me, and the excitement is endless. Compared with "Aunt Xicheng", sophomore students Zhang Yiqing and Wang Manlin from Beijing Institute of Technology were slightly shy.
"Our concept of the CPPCC is still in the books of the ideological and political courses in middle schools and universities." Zhang Yiqing recalled that to know how much he knew about the CPPCC, it was actually very limited. "So this public open day event is like a vivid and concrete ideological and political lesson. Many of our classmates sign up to study." Wang Manlin added.
"Students followed the team and asked any questions during the visit." Bian Zhang Luo walked into the CPPCC Auditorium with the students around him, and Zhang Shengyang, a teacher at the School of Foreign Languages, School of International Relations, told him from time to time.
Zhang Shengyang is no stranger to the CPPCC. His mother is a member of the Jiu San Society. "From an early age, I heard my mother talk about multi-party cooperation and consultations with the CPPCC. I often saw scenes of CPPCC members participating in politics and discussions on television. It must be more real than what you hear and see. "
"Because I'm a teacher," Zhang Shengyang added, with such immersive learning, I want to talk to the students about the CPPCC system in the future, which will be more energetic, more vivid and concrete. The CPPCC is not a rigid theory. It also has characters, stories, and temperatures. Zhang Shengyang looked at the students around him and said that these students, in the future, they may all bear the responsibility and mission of telling Chinese stories to the outside world. They should understand the CPPCC before they can tell the story of the CPPCC.
"On September 20, more than a month ago, General Secretary Xi Jinping attended the CPPCC Auditorium to attend the CPPCC work meeting and celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the CPPCC, and delivered an important speech." At the brief launching ceremony of the event, the Deputy Secretary-General of the CPPCC National Committee Pan Ligang introduced to everyone that the National People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) public open day activities are precisely the specific actions and measures of General Secretary Jinping's important speech and the spirit of the meeting, to improve the people's understanding of the CPPCC, and to deepen their recognition of the socialist political system with Chinese characteristics.
In order to show the development process and working characteristics of the CPPCC vividly, comprehensively and deeply through the limited "cuts" in the Open Day activities, the CPPCC National Committee conducted careful consideration and arrangements, and carefully planned the content and activities of the Open Day activities. route--
More than 200 ordinary people first watched the promotional video of "New Era, New Mission, New Roles-Work Tour since the First Session of the 13th Session of the CPPCC National Committee" in the small auditorium, and then divided into 5 groups. They visited the Standing Committee Conference and the CPPCC Auditorium. "The Eighth Congress of the Communist Party of China" photo exhibition, the venue of the bi-weekly consultation forum, the venue of the New Year's Tea Party, the auditorium, and the "People's Political Consultative Conference glorious history" exhibition of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. Through an "intimate contact" with the CPPCC, touch the development marks of China's socialist democratic system and experience the glorious history of the CPPCC on the spot.
■ From the CPPCC around you to the CPPCC in your heart
The 84-year-old Zhang Yabo was standing for a long time before the photo exhibition of the "Party of the Eighth Congress of the Chinese Communist Party of China" in the auditorium of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
"I lived near this place more than 50 years ago. The auditorium is still basically the same as it was then, but the surroundings have changed so much that the bungalows have become high-rise buildings." The elderly Zhang Yabo squinted his eyes and looked closely at his eyes. This is the picture of the Eighth National Congress of the Communist Party of China held in the auditorium of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference in 1956.
Since the Great Hall of the People was not yet built, many important party and state events were held here. Take, for example, the Eighth National Congress of the Communist Party of China in the photo, which announced the basic completion of the Chinese socialist revolution and the basic establishment of the socialist system. We are familiar with the fact that "an open mind makes people progress, pride makes people lag behind" is the first time Mao Zedong mentioned in the opening speech of this conference.
In an instant, 63 years passed. "Our country has undergone earth-shaking changes, and our people have lived a happy life in such a change. The role and influence of the CPPCC cannot be separated here." The old man's words were simple and simple, "Although I am older Hearing is not very good. People say 'live to learn and learn,' I have a chance to understand how our CPPCC system works. "
"We are now at the site of a bi-weekly consultation forum held every two weeks by the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference." Following the steps of the lecturer, a conference room with circular seats appeared in front of him. "Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, The bi-weekly consultation forum, as a major institutional innovation in the People's Political Consultative Conference's deliberative democracy, has drawn increasing social attention. "
Fan Jinpeng, secretary general of the Harbin Military Alumni Association, carefully listened to the voice of the interpreter, and took a "selfie" with his mobile phone. "The members are sitting together at the meeting, just like our ordinary people usually pull home. It is conceivable that in such a relaxed atmosphere, everyone must be able to say anything and speak freely! "Fan Jinpeng has served as a member of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC of the Furong District of Changsha City. Although he has only one session, he always considers himself a CPPCC member. "Can I also call it my mother's home this time?"
Continue along the line, the explainer introduced the topics of some important meetings held by the CPPCC through headsets. These topics, which focus on the work of party committees and government centers, as well as the concerns of the masses and the society, have promoted the resolution of the problem to some extent or are being resolved through consultations and discussions between the participating units of the CPPCC and relevant parties.
The street resident representative Song Yuhuan pulled the commentator and confirmed, "You just said that the bi-weekly consultation forum chaired by Chairman Wang Yang, and also discussed the issue of veterans' employment and children's lunch?" After a positive response, Song Yuhuan was quite Sorry, the CPPCC is concerned about national affairs. I did not expect the ordinary things of children to eat, the CPPCC also kept in mind. Song Yuhuan smiled and said that he used to live not far from the CPPCC but always felt "out of reach". He learned about the practical work done by the CPPCC for the people's livelihood and the problems that the people have solved. Around.
Among the visiting routes, the public was the most "pick-up card" to remember, as well as the CPPCC Standing Committee Meeting Hall and the third floor lobby of the CPPCC Auditorium.
The Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee is an important venue for CPPCC meetings and other conference activities. Under the high dome, there are 551 seats including the rostrum. Each seat is set up in favor, abstention, and opposition. Voting keys. At the same time, the conference hall of the Standing Committee is also equipped with an ad hoc speaker system and simultaneous interpretation equipment. Participants can fully express their opinions and reflect people's democracy. Among them, the first feeling of many people is, "Respectful respect." "It seems that there is a sacred and solemn power invisibly."
Look at the hall on the third floor of the auditorium. On the first day of the 1980s, the CPPCC held the first New Year tea party in the hall of this auditorium. Since then, it has become customary to hold a New Year's Tea Party in the Auditorium of the CPPCC and continues to this day.
Today, the annual CPPCC New Year's Tea Party is attended by the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee collectively, which shows that the CPC Central Committee attaches great importance to the CPPCC, as well as to parties, groups, and ethnic groups.
"The multi-party cooperation and political consultation system led by the Communist Party of China is unique in the world. No country in the world can achieve broad consensus through consultation and democracy in such a large population as China." From the aerospace system Liu Dengrui, a retired cadre standing in the middle of the third floor of the auditorium, felt quite "professional".
Without waiting for questions from reporters, Liu Dengrui, who was the director of the China Aerospace Archives, told us that because every generation of Chinese astronauts has members of the CPPCC, the astronauts will never forget the contributions of the members and the CPPCC in promoting the space industry. Hard work. "Do you know? In 2016, the State Council approved the establishment of April 24 every year as the" China Aerospace Day ", which is the result of years of calls through the CPPCC." The more people around Liu Dengrui gathered, everyone wanted to hear this The "CPPCC Story" around me ...
Although there is still much to be desired, the first public open day is by no means the last. It is reported that in the future, the organs of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference will regularly hold public open day activities, so that more ordinary people have the opportunity to enter the People's Political Consultative Conference and get to know the People's Political Consultative Conference.
