Journalists conduct a group interview during an activity to retrace the route of the Long March at a revolutionary site in Ruijin City, east China's Jiangxi Province, June 11, 2019. The activity is aimed at paying tribute to the revolutionary martyrs and passing on the traditions of revolution, as the country celebrates the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China this year. Over 500 journalists from more than 30 media outlets across the country attended the ceremonies. The Long March was a military maneuver carried out by the Chinese Workers' and Peasants' Red Army from 1934 to 1936. During this period, they left their bases and marched through rivers, mountains and arid grassland to break the siege of Kuomintang forces and continue to fight Japanese aggressors. Many marched as far as 12,500 km. (Xinhua/Li Renzi)
