The May Fourth Movement was a reform movement which occurred annually in China from 1917 to 1921. When the Treaty of Versailles gave the land that Germany had taken from China to Japan, the Chinese demonstrated against the decision. The Movement was supported by the Nationalist Party and important intellectuals, such as Hu Feng, Hu Shi and Ouyang Xiu. Its goal was to reach national independence and freedom for everyone.
