A 60-YEAR-OLD tricyclist, who has been on the road since 2000 to remind the Chinese people of the atrocities Japanese invaders committed in China, arrived in Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province on Tuesday.  

Fu Erliang, from Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, is on his third solo tricycle tour since he started the campaign in 2000.  

The retiree from the Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Co, whose maternal grandfather was killed by the Japanese during the war against Japanese invasion (1937-1945), said he hoped young people would not forget the Japanese occupation.  

Fu said he wanted to show his support for compensation claims from those who suffered during the occupation. He said the Japanese governments had always neglected their country's crimes. 

Each year Fu starts his tour on Aug 31 and usually covers more than 20 provinces. – People's Daily
