The year 2024 marks the 90th anniversary of the departure of the Red Army's Long March.

From crossing the Jinsha River to forcibly crossing the Dadu River, from flying over the Luding Bridge to turning over snow-capped mountains and crossing grasslands, the story of the Long March has been widely spread over the past 90 years. The most precious spiritual wealth left to us by the Long March, a great feat in human history, is the great spirit of the Long March, forged by the Chinese communists and the officers and men of the Red Army with their lives and blood.

Every generation has its own long march, and every generation must walk its own long march. The new era starts again, and the Long March is always on the way. (ENDS)
