Between 1924 and 1927, a vigorous anti-imperialist, anti-feudal warlords revolutionary movement swept across China. Its scale, the number of people it mobilized, the far-reaching effects it brought - in the history of modern Chinese revolution is unprecedented. People often call it the "The Great Revolution" or "The Nationalist Revolution of China".
Leading labor movements was the main work of the Communist Party of China after it was founded in 1921. In February 1923, the Beijing-Hankou Railway Workers' Union was established. They went on strike on February 7 and were brutally repressed by the government. Members of the Beijing-Hankou Railway Workers’ Union pose for a photo when the union was established; Lin Xiangqian (in top right corner) was killed in the strike.
