Summary of contents

Rongjiang is a jade belt with thousands of miles. The great Beishan in Jiexi is a red land. It was the cradle of the Chaoshan revolutionary struggle during the domestic revolutionary war, the war of resistance against Japan and the war of liberation. During the war of liberation, the heroic sons and daughters of the great Beishan had fought resolutely against the Kuomintang reactionaries under the leadership of the Communist Party. Tonight's "red tide Shantou line", we walked into two legendary villages -- torch village and rough pit village, to review the magnificent revolutionary history of that period.

Torch Village


The beautiful Beishan Mountain belongs to the middle section of Lianhua Mountain, with an average elevation of more than 700 meters. Here, it is not only pregnant with lush green vegetation, but also seeding endless revolutionary fire. In the northeast of Nanshan Town of Jiexi County, there is a beautiful small mountain village under the big Beishan Mountain. It is surrounded by three hills and two streams. It is like the "dragon jump pit". It is renamed the "torch village". It symbolizes the revolutionary torch never extinguished and the revolutionary spirit passed down from generation to generation. In the early days of the war of liberation, this was the guerrilla base area of the Chaoshan people's anti personnel force. The local party organization led and led the masses to resist conscription, anti taxation and anti grain collection, and made outstanding contributions to the cause of liberation.



At the depth of 6 kilometers north of the torch village, there is a "Qing Bao Temple" built in the Qing Dynasty, which is the birthplace of the Chaoshan people's anti fighting team. In 1946, after the Kuomintang launched the civil war, the military lost its battle and the finance was in crisis. In order to support the war, the Kuomintang stepped up the "three levy". In June 1947, the war of liberation entered the stage of strategic counterattack. In June 1947, the Chaoshan people's anti terrorist team was formally established in Tianbao hall. Since then, it has become the stronghold of the armed struggle of the Chaoshan people during the war of liberation.



After the establishment of the anti levy team, the heroes and heroines of the north mountain area took the Dragon jump pit village as an important base to carry out revolutionary activities. In the summer of 1948, the headquarters of the anti levy team moved to the Li ancestral hall in the north mountain building of the Dragon jump pit. The Ministry of political affairs set up a political department to maintain contact with the higher level organizations at radio stations and mobilize and command the revolutionary actions of the party organizations in Chaoshan District. At that time, although the village of Long Yue Keng was small, the military structure of the revolutionary army was readily available. In addition to its headquarters, the village also has logistics department, Arsenal, weapons and ammunition storage depot, Chaoshan military court, detention house and rear hospital.

The road is as solid as iron, and now we are moving forward. In order to engrave the glorious history of the revolutionary era, in 1953, the Dragon Yue Keng Village was renamed "torch village", which symbolized the "spark" of the revolution as a torch to lighten the darkness, and will eventually form a "prairie fire". Today's torch village is playing the melody of creating the model village of the red socialist new countryside, and a picture of a new socialist countryside is slowly developing on this red land.


Rough pit village


In the big Beishan Mountain with hills and hills, there is also a village known as Xiao Hang Village. The rough hole village surrounded by mountains has beautiful scenery, such as the famous HUANG Man Village waterfalls.

Walking along the path into the village, it seems to enter a historical scroll with years of luster. After the founding of new China, Comrade Gu Da Cun, deputy secretary of the Southern China branch of the CPC Central Committee and vice chairman of the Guangdong Provincial People's government, had carried out revolutionary activities in rough pit village. Comrade Mao Zedong once praised him as "thorny rose".




Talking about the history of rough pit village, we have to talk about rough pit meeting. In June 1947, the Chaoshan Committee of the CPC Chaoshan convened here. This is an important meeting with a turning point in the Chaoshan revolutionary history. The meeting decided the strategic transformation from mountain area to plain, from concealment to open, and put forward the strategic center of choosing the great Beishan as the center for the military struggle in Chaoshan. With Da Nan Shan and Lantau Peak as the strategic fulcrum, Nanyang mountain and five Fangshan as the turning point, the plum blossom revolutionary base area was established. The convening of the crude pit meeting echoed the Chaoshan people's anti fighting team which was founded in Tianbao hall, indicating that the people's armed struggle in Chaoshan has entered a new historical stage.

Across a rugged gravel road, we arrived at another very revolutionary site, the former site of the Shantou daily. This red newspaper is closely related to the organization of the party in terms of politics. Based on the development of the Chaoshan revolutionary situation, it puts forward a combat slogan at each stage, vigorously publicizing the victory of the PLA, and plays an important role in attacking the enemy, uniting the army and the people, and encouraging the fighting spirit.

The vigorous revolutionary history left precious red resources for the rough pit village. The great Beishan revolutionary spirit inspired generations of old children to develop their economy and make progress. Nowadays, the rough pit village combines the red tourism and green tourism organically, creating the bright spot of the industrial development in the old area, attracting many tourists, and the rough pit village has become the "model village of China's rural tourism".
