努力防止

1907年孫中山領導的革命黨發動了多次起義,給清政府帶來沉重的打擊。清政府於是加強了對革命的防範,但輿論已意識到,清政府不可力挽狂瀾。

畫中一群官員合力用繩索來箍緊已破裂並開始漏水的水缸,情況就有如當時清王朝對中國的統治已是千瘡百孔,實在無法阻擋革命的洪流。

這幅漫畫最先在日本《東京畫報》刊登,《時事畫報》於1908年轉載。

Fighting hard to stop

In 1907, the Revolutionary Party, led by Dr. Sun Yat-sen, launched a number of uprisings, striking a hard blow against the Qing government. The Qing court, therefore, strengthened its defences, but the public were already aware that it was impossible for the Qing government to turn back the tide.

The cartoon shows a group of government officials working together to hold a broken water jar together using ropes, illustrating how dysfunctional the Qing government had become, and how its actions and reactions made it impossible to withstand the powerful tide of revolution.

This cartoon was first published in the Tokyo Pictorial in Japan, and was reprinted in Pictorial of Current Events in 1908.
