World Freedom Day 2017

January 23, 2017 in Taiwan / South Korea

World Freedom Day is observed on January 23, 2017. World Freedom Day is a memorial day celebrated each year in Taiwan and South Korea. The event marks the return of some 22,000 ex-communist war prisoners of the Korean War (19501953) to Taiwan, of whom 14,000 Chinese soldiers arrived at Keelung harbor on 23 January 1954, and were given the title "Anti-Communist Martyrs". The Republic of China (ROC) government subsequently declared 23 January as World Freedom Day to honor these soldiers, and created the "Anti-Communist League" to fight communist expansion worldwide. Every year World Freedom Day Celebrations are held in Taiwan, and the event is attended by both locals and foreign delegates from all over the world. Usually, the president of the ROC delivers a congratulatory message, and cultural performances take place. (With material from: Wikipedia)
