The Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party has decided that Comrade Li Hsueh-feng, First Secretary of the North China Bureau of the Party's Central Committee, be appointed concurrently First Secretary of the Peking Municipal Party Committee, and that Comrade Wu Teh, First Secretary of the Kirin Provincial Party Committee, be transferred to the post of Second Secretary of the Peking Municipal Party Committee to reorganize it.
Comrades Li Hsueh-feng and Wu Teh are already at work at their new posts. The new Peking Municipal Party Committee will directly lead the great socialist cultural revolution in Peking.
The newly reorganized Peking Municipal Committee of the Chinese Communist Party has decided that (I) a work team, headed by Chang Cheng-hsien, be sent to Peking University to lead the great socialist cultural revolution; (2) that Lu Ping, Secretary of the Peking University Party Committee, and Peng Pei-yun, its Deputy Secretary, be dismissed from all their posts and that the Peking University Party Committee be reorganized; (3) that the work team will function as the Peking University Party Committee during its reorganization.
The new Peking Municipal Party Committee has decided that (1) the previous editorial board of "Beijing Ribao" (Peking Daily) and 'Beijing Wanbao" (Peking Evening News) and Fan Chin, their director, be dismissed; (2) that a new editorial board, consisting of Chai Hsiang-tung and six others, be set up to lead the work of the two papers and that Chai Hsiang-tung be appointed editor-in-chief and Wu Hsiang and Lin Ching be appointed deputy editors-in-chief; and (3) that the editorial board of the fortnightly "Qianxian" (Frontline) be dismissed and publication of the journal be temporarily suspended pending reorganization.
THIS paper publishes two important items of news today. One is about the decision of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on the reorganization of the Poking Municipal Committee of the Party, with the appointment of Comrade Li Hsueh-feng, First Secretary of the North China Bureau of the Party's Central Committee, as concurrently First Secretary of the new Peking Municipal Committee of the Party, and Comrade Wu Teh as Second Secretary. The other item announces that the newly reorganized Peking Municipal Committee of the Chinese Communist Party has decided that Lu Ping and Peng Pei-yun he dismissed from all their posts and that the Poking University Party Committee be reorganized. The newly reorganized Peking Municipal Party Committee also decided to send a work team to the university to lead the great socialist cultural revolution and to act as the Peking University Party Committee.
These two items of news, after being broadcast over the radio at four o'clock yesterday afternoon, immediately received the warm support of the worker and peasant masses as well as of government organizations, colleges and schools, people's organizations and the People's Liberation Army units in Peking. The people are elated; and their universally expressed opinion is that these decisions of the Central Committee and the newly reorganized Peking Municipal Committee of the Party are very wise and absolutely correct. This is a new victory for Mao Tse-tung's thought.
A black anti-Party and anti-socialist line ran through the leadership given by the former Peking Municipal Committee of the Party.
A number of the principal leading members of the former Peking Municipal Party Committee are not Marxists but revisionists.
The counter-revolutionary anti-Party and anti-socialist clique of "Three-Family Village" was uncovered during the great socialist cultural revolution. The roots of this counter-revolutionary clique lay in the former Peking Municipal Committee of the Party.
For a considerable period of time, Qianxian (Frontline), Beijing Ribao (Peking Daily) and Beijing Wanbao (Peking Evening News) became instruments of this counter-revolutionary clique for spreading revisionist poison, in a futile attempt to restore capitalism. The former Peking Municipal Committee of the Party was at the very root of this.
For a considerable period of time, many departments of the Peking Party and government organizations carried out not the Marxist-Leninist line, the line of Mao Tse-tung's thought mapped out by the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, but a revisionist line. They were instruments not of the proletariat for exercising dictatorship over the bourgeoisie but of the bourgeoisie for exercising dictatorship over the proletariat. The former Peking Municipal Committee of the Party was at the very root of this.
The former Peking Municipal Committee of the Party also carried out an anti-Party and anti-socialist line in education. Peking University was a most stubborn bulwark under its control. As many students of Peking University have revealed, its educational policy was not the training of successors for the proletarian revolutionary cause but the training of successors for the bourgeoisie.
The workers, peasants and soldiers in Peking and the many revolutionary functionaries and revolutionary intellectuals have for a long time been resisting and fighting against the black anti-Party and anti-socialist line of the former Peking Municipal Party Committee. They have kept firmly to the teachings of the Central Committee of the Party and Chairman Mao Tse-tung, have done a great deal of work and made their contribution to the socialist revolution and socialist construction. More than 95 per cent of the people and more than 95 per cent of the government functionaries in the Peking area support Chairman Mao and the Central Committee of the Party. Now that they know the real facts of the matter, those who were temporarily misled are immediately rallying and going into action against the black anti-Party and anti-socialist line of the former Peking Municipal Party Committee.
There is today a vigorous revolutionary situation in Peking University. The poster put up by seven comrades, including Nieh Yuan-tzu, written in big characters, was the opening shot. Everyone in the university was inspired and there was widespread joy as soon as the contents of this poster were broadcast over the radio and published in the newspapers. The proletarian revolutionaries are elated and the ranks of the Left have rapidly expanded. Tens of thousands of big-character posters have descended on the heads of the anti-Party and anti-socialist elements like a rain of shells. The active support given by all universities and colleges in Peking has greatly enhanced the revolutionary power and prestige of the proletariat. The "royalists" have panicked, they have become completely isolated. Under the leadership of the work team sent in by the new Municipal Party Committee, the students, faculty members and workers are firmly straightening things out and combating the anti-Party and anti-socialist crimes of Lu Ping and the others.
In appearance, these counter-revolutionary anti-Party and anti-socialist cliques looked very tough. Under their control, the barriers were impenetrable and watertight. But once Chairman Mao Tse-tung and the Central Committee of the Party issued the clarion call to carry out the great proletarian cultural revolution, once the masses stood up, the counter-revolutionary features of these cliques were quickly exposed. Like all reactionaries, they were simply paper tigers.
The situation in our country is excellent. The people of the whole country have boundless love for Chairman Mao and the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, Mao Tse-tung's thought has penetrated people's minds, the political consciousness of the masses is higher than it has ever been and tremendous successes have been registered in the socialist revolution and construction. No one who dares to oppose Chairman Mao, to oppose Mao Tse-tung's thought, to oppose the Central Committee of the Party, the dictatorship of the proletariat and the socialist system can escape denunciation by the whole Party and the whole nation, whoever he may be, whatever high position he may hold and however much of a veteran he may be. The only possible result is the total loss of his standing and reputation.
We are firmly convinced that under the leadership of the newly reorganized Peking Municipal Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, the erroneous line of the former Municipal Party Committee and the effects of this line will be thoroughly eradicated. Tremendous successes in the great proletarian cultural revolution in Peking are certain. All work in Peking is bound to go ahead well.
