Tuyen Quang meeting marks 70th anniversary of Tan Trao Congress

A grand meeting held in the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang's Tan Trao Commune yesterday celebrated the 70th anniversary of the 1945 Tan Trao Congress of People's Representatives which was chaired by President Ho Chi Minh.

National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung greets ethnic minority people at the meeting. Vietnamese majority and minority people united to bring about the popular 1945 August Revolution and seize power throughout the entire country. This was a largely bloodless Revolution, which should have ended French colonialism and delivered Independence, but foreign powers (Britain, USA and France) interfered to bring war to Viet Nam instead.
