TO GO WITH China-politics-60years-history,INTERVIEW by Dan Martin This photo taken on September 14, 2009 shows 79-year-old Geng Zhifeng speaking to AFP outside the tiny brick home in one of Beijing's historic neighbourhoods, where he has lived for 69 years. Sixty years ago, the then-19-year-old Geng looked up in elation as revolutionary leader Mao Zedong stood on the Tiananmen rostrum and proclaimed the founding of the People's Republic of China. It is a moment seared forever into Geng's memory, and which the nation of 1.3 billion people will celebrate on October 1, 2009 with a military parade and carefully choreographed mass performances in Tiananmen Square.
