Opium Destruction at Humen Beach

Since the middle and late of the 18th century, the western capitalist countries led by the United Kingdom, stepped up the trade expansion policy and made opium as a stepping stone to the Chinese market. They carried out armed smuggling and mass dumping, which endangered the survival of the Chinese nation. In 1839, the Chinese people represented by Lin Zexu set off the first mass anti-drug wave in human history. More than 1.1 million kilograms of the British and American opium were destructed at Humen beach in public, which shocked the whole world and wrote a brilliant chapter in the history of anti-drug in the world.
