Tsingtao Revolutionary Committee's Call To the City's Proletarian Revolutionaries to Form Alliances Based on Working Units and Departments

Source: Peking Review, No. 11, March 10, 1967
Transcribed for www.wengewang.org


IN an open letter on March 2, the Tsingtao Revolutionary Committee, the new power organ sot up by the proletarian revolutionaries after their seizure of power, called upon the city's proletarian revolutionaries to keep the interests of the whole in mind and to form alliances on the basis of units and departments in order to keep up with the new situation.
   The open letter says that most existing revolutionary organizations in the city were set up early in the great proletarian cultural revolution. At that time, in order to get round the many obstacles put in their way by the bourgeois reactionary line, the proletarian revolutionaries broke through the restrictions between various units, departments and fields of work to exchange revolutionary experience. This was entirely necessary. These revolutionary organizations played an important role in organizing and mobilizing the masses in the earlier stage of the cultural revolution. They wrote a brilliant page in the history of the great proletarian cultural revolution in Tsingtao.
   The open letter quotes the great leader Chairman Mao's teaching: "Everything must serve victory at the front, and the organizational tusk must be subordinated to the political task." The movement has now reached a now stage, that of fighting a decisive battle to seize power from the handful of persons who are in authority and taking the capitalist road. The open letter recalls that on January 22 the city's allied proletarian revolutionaries, with the strong support of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, seized Party, government, financial and cultural power from a handful of persons in the Party who were in authority and took the capitalist road in the Tsingtao Municipal Party Committee and the Municipal People's Council, and formed the Tsingtao Revolutionary Committee — a provisional organ of power of the "three-in-one" combination of representatives of revolutionary mass organizations, local army units and revolutionary leading cadres. Since then, a new radical change has taken place in the city's cultural revolution and Tsingtao's proletarian revolutionaries are facing many new fighting tasks.
   The open letter points out: From now on, under the unified leadership of the city's revolutionary committee, work will be carried out on the basis of the various fields of work, trades, units and departments. Within each of these the proletarian revolutionaries have a common goal of struggle and a common task, that is, to struggle against those in authority taking the capitalist road, to criticize and repudiate the reactionary bourgeois academic "authorities" and the ideology of the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes, and to transform education, literature and art and all other parts of the superstructure not in correspondence with the socialist economic base. In each they also have the common task of "Taking firm hold of the revolution and promoting production." All this means that to provide unified leadership, revolutionary organizations must immediately be set up on the basis of the fields of work, units, departments and areas.
   The letter notes that some of the existing revolutionary organizations do not conform to this but cut across different trades and departments. Often revolutionary rebels in a unit or department may belong to many separate revolutionary organizations (see note on p. 9) each forming an independent system of its own. These revolutionary organizations may even be opposed to one another. This seriously hampers co-ordination among revolutionaries in the struggle. This not only hinders the accomplishing of common tasks but also fosters "small group" mentality and sectarianism and is unfavourable to revolutionizing the thinking of these proletarian revolutionaries.
   As to how to improve the organizational form and make re-adjustments, the open letter expresses the determination first to organize the proletarian revolutionaries on the basis of units and departments in a unified revolutionary organization and then to form alliances from bottom to top according to trades, fields of work and areas. It points out that such an organizational form meets the needs of the current situation and tasks of the struggle and is what the broad revolutionary masses demand. This experience has also proved to be effective in Shanghai and Kweichow.
   The letter stresses that to achieve this new form it is imperative to put Mao Tse-tung's thought in command. This is the soul of the great alliance.

The letter quotes Chairman Mao's teaching:

   "We should encourage comrades to take the interests of the whole into account. Every Party member, every branch of work, every statement and every action must proceed from the interests of the whole Party; it is absolutely impermissible to violate this principle.” Every revolutionary organization, it says, must resolutely follow Chairman Mao's teachings and unite on the basis of Mao Tse-tung's thought.
   "At this key moment when the current great cultural revolution is going deeper, whether the great alliance can be achieved or not on the basis of units or departments is the yardstick for determining whether a particular organization is revolutionary, whether it truly holds aloft the great red banner of Mao Tse-tung's thought, and whether the rectification campaign has been effective. It is a rigorous test for every revolutionary organization," the letter points out.
   At present, it continues, every revolutionary organization is launching a rectification campaign for the creative study and application of Chairman Mao's works. This is extremely favourable to the forming of the new great alliance.
"The Tsingtao Revolutionary Committee demands that all local proletarian revolutionaries carry the mass movement for the creative study and application of Chairman Mao's works to new heights, launch an effective rectification campaign,   thoroughly  eliminate 'self-interest' and vigorously foster 'public-interest,' sweep away non-proletarian ways of thinking that hamper the great alliance, and straighten out the ranks of the proletarian revolutionaries in line with this new form so as to create a unified revolutionary organization."
   The letter quotes Chairman Mao: "The enemy will not perish of himself," and "The imperialists and domestic reactionaries will certainly not take their defeat lying down." it points out that what the class enemy fears most is that the proletarian revolutionaries will achieve a great alliance better suited to the new situation. If the great alliance of the proletarian revolutionaries is broadened and more closely knit, the class enemy will be more isolated and will find the going tougher with each passing day. Therefore, proletarian revolutionaries must keep sharp vigilance, prevent the enemy from making trouble, and expose all their plots and criminal activities so as to deal them a resolute and heavy blow.
   The same day they published their open letter, the Revolutionary Committee of Tsingtao published the decision on the formation of proletarian revolutionary alliances in the new situation on the basis of units and departments. The decision calls on all members of proletarian revolutionary organizations to discuss and debate the question of whether the existing forms of their organizations are suited to the fighting tasks they are now facing. They are advised to use Mao Tse-tung's thought as their guide to reach a common understanding and to take immediate action to unite into new forms of organization.
   The decision points out that the city-wide general headquarters or liaison headquarters of revolutionary mass organizations should be dissolved at once. All personnel in such general headquarters, with the exception of those taking part in the work of the Municipal Revolutionary Committee, should return to their own units and departments and join the proletarian revolutionaries there to seize power from the handful of persons in the Party who are in authority and taking the capitalist road and to exercise this power to lake a firm hold of revolution and promote production, and to carry the great proletarian cultural revolution through to the end.
   The decision calls on the revolutionary mass organizations in various fields of work or various areas or in the various units at the basic level, such as factory, shop or street, to form provisional organs of power in line with the principle of the "three-in-one" combination.
