China Goes Big Red for the Birthday of the Communist Party

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 29, 2011


China’s communist party turns 90 in a few days, and the country is alive with red pride. Everywhere one goes they see the flags fluttering, the songs of the good old days and that crazy old time communist dance. The media has also gotten into the swing of things and has captured much of the lead up to the auspicious occasion on film. The funny thing is that the more things change, the more you have to say wtf? Yeah, check out the pics below and try to figure out which ones come from the cultural revolution, a time of utter chaos in China, and which ones are recent….
