10 October 1911

Accade Oggi

A prominent figure of the event that we remember today is surely Sun Yat-sen: politician, revolutionary, writer, doctor and "Father of modern China". He was at the helm of the Kuomintag movement, the party that in 1911 led the Xinhai Revolution, arriving the following year to end the Qing dynasty. Thus gave the Republic of China life with a glimmer of democracy on the horizon. It all began on October 10th, 1911, in Wuchang, a district in Hubei province, where a revolt led by revolutionaries and members of the "New Army", also influenced by the subversive ideas of Sun Yat-sen, assaulted and conquered the imperial government building local in less than a day. This is how the Xinhai Revolution began, a revolution that channeled all the growing discontent of the population towards the imperial Qing family and that ignited the demands for independence even outside of Wuchang. The Chinese Revolutionary Alliance or Tongmenghui, a secret resistance society created by Sun Yat-sen, won the civil war. The Chinese Revolutionary Alliance promoted its own republican, nationalist and socialist principles, and officially proclaimed, on February 12, 1912, the end of imperial China.

Taiwan still celebrates this day as its national holiday, and even in today's People's Republic of China, although it is not considered a holiday, there can be celebrations.
