Friday is the 22nd anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. On?
Friday is the 22nd anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. On the country's doorstep, in the British colony Hong Kong and in Portuguese Macao, Communists and other wellwishers were putting up decorations to celebrate China's National Day.
Reports from China itself say Peking has taken on a festive air. The streets are ablaze with colour as street theatre groups perform on street corners and in parks, although the National Day parade has been cancelled.
