He has (Aug.20) since been assassinated by his enemies. He was said to be an ultra -- 'Red'." "The banner at the extreme left -- folded over-has a legend something like this: 'Imperialism must be turned upside down.' The long banner on the left of Kai's right hand reads, 'Citizens have come into self realization.' The two words above his head- rest of the banner not visible- 'Take Away-' Banner showing above hat in foreground to observer's right- 'We certainly must act- or Immediate action- rest of the banner concealed.' A man stands at the center of a crowd, and several banners hanging from poles can be seen nearby.
Photo relates to the Shameen incident of June 23, 1925, part of a nationwide series of strikes and demonstrations precipitated by the killing of 13 labor demonstrators by British police in Shanghai.
