Transcript of may fourth movement

May Fourth Movement
The May Fourth Movement began a patriotic outburst of new urban intellectuals against foreign imperialists and warlords. After more than a month of demonstrations, strikes, and boycotts of Japanese goods, the government gave way and refused to sign the peace treaty with Germany. China had entered World War I on the side of the Allied Triple Entente in 1917 with the condition that all German spheres of influence, such as Shandong, would be returned to China. That year, 140,000 Chinese labourers were sent to France. Wich started the out break. some 5,000 students frome Peking University hit the streets to demonstrate against the versailles treaty. Instead of rewarding China for its contribution to the Allies’ victory, the Versailles Treaty of April 1919 awarded German rights in Shandong Province to Japan. They voiced their anger at the Allied betrayal of China and the government's inability to secure Chinese interests in the conference. A boycott of Japanese products during this period was advocated, which boosted the domestic Chinese industry slightly During these demonstrations, students also insisted on the resignation of three Chinese officials involved in these proceedings. After burning the residence of one of the three despised officials, student protesters were arrested and severely assaulted.[ students would shout: Struggle for the sovereignty externally, get rid of the national traitors at home By Victoria Eckenrode Design a day for your topic.
