3 The Great Leap ForwardThe Great Leap Forward happened in 1863 to Mao Zedong was the leader of the Great Leap Forward. He created the Great Leap Forward to modernize China’s economy so that by 1988 China would have a economy that rivaled America. By the 1950s the first five year plan considered the conditions ripe for a Great Leap Forward. It then developed more vibrant, and it was successful, it was permanent. The Great Leap Forward was made. In 1958 Chinese people were to go all out in a concerted effort to surpass England. In 15 years and to make the transitions to communism, at the same time leaving the soviet union. In 1958 the Great Leap Forward took action. The Chinese people tried to take over Americas economy. So they could stop people from starving. The Great Leap Forward was important to history. In conclusion, Mao failed. His attempt to modernize China’s economy it failed. He made wrong decision. Mao lost at least millions of money, and failed. And that’s some history about the Great Leap Forward.
4 Tiananmen SquareDo you know what the Tiananmen Square is? Do you know what happened their? And why it happened? The Tiananmen Square is where a lot of Chinese people died. What happened was that a lot of people was protesting. All of those people died because they where protesting. The Tiananmen square happened on may The people that where protesting where mainly students. The Tiananmen Square protest was mainly economic reasons. That students crowded into central Beijing to protest for a greater democracy, and call for of a greater resignation a Chinese communist party. That is some stuff about the Tiananmen Square. In conclusion the Tiananmen Square was a sad place. Not only was the Tiananmen Square lead by students but it was lead by intellectuals too. It was started by the death of a party official. All the people died because the communist party came in, and the army was there and so was the tanks and guns. The last thing is that the Tiananmen Square when the students didn’t get what they wanted; they starved themselves. Since they starved them selves; it got so bad people had to go to the hospital. And that’s all!
