A former Red Guard has published a magazine advertisement apologizing for his wrongdoings during the "cultural revolution" (1966-76), sparking similar confessions and apologies around the country, China Youth Daily reported.

Liu Boqin, a former Red Guard from Shandong province, placed an advertisement in a monthly political magazine in early June, apologizing to those he hurt during the "cultural revolution". "Though affected and coerced by the special social environment then, I shouldn't be immune from being responsible for the evil I did," Liu said.
