font size    

The delegation of Taiwan's New Party visited the Wanzhong Cemetery in Dalian Saturday morning, and paid homage to Chinese compatriots killed in the 1894 Sino-Japanese war.

Situated in Lushunkou District of Dalian, the Wanzhong Cemetery was built in commemoration of the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 launched by Japanese imperialism to annex Korea and invade China.

In black suits and with solemn looks, Yok Mu-ming, chairman of New Party, presented a wreath to the cemetery on behalf of the New Party and mourned for those dead compatriots.

Led by Yok Mu-ming, the delegation members bowed three times tothe cemetery, and laid white lilies in front of the cemetery.

Yok Mu-ming told reporters that Nanjing, Dalian and many other places in China experienced sufferings and woes of wars and many innocent compatriots were killed by invaders.

The New Party delegation paid homage to those dead compatriots, with the aim to arouse all Chinese people to make concerted effort for the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

According to historical records, the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 broke out in July that year. The Japanese invaders conquered Lushunkou on Nov. 21, 1894, looting and killing the locals for four days. Nearly 20,000 Chinese were slaughtered in the rampage, with only 36 survivors.
