    A GREAT battle against the bloody persecution by British imperialism has erupted in Hongkong. Since early May, in defiance of armed suppression by British troops and police, our patriotic compatriots there, holding aloft Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung, have gone into the streets. Strikes and work stoppages have been announced by workers in various trades. Advancing wave upon wave and fearing no sacrifice, they courageously buffet with British troops, police and thugs. This tremendous, raging, anti-imperialist mass movement is now developing with a vengeance.
   In disregard of the Chinese Government's repealed warnings, the British authorities in Hongkong, instead of submitting and pleading guilty to their fascist atrocities, have intensified their provocations against the Chinese people. They have continued to illegally arrest and try our patriotic compatriots. It is shocking the way they beat up, maltreat and murder those under arrest. They have promulgated a series of so-called "emergency decrees'' to provide "legal grounds'' lo "justify" their persecution and make the resistance to violence a "crime" in an attempt to stamp out our patriotic compatriots' struggle against imperialism and violence with more arrests and persecution on a still larger scale. They have also moved in an aircraft carrier to make, as they bluntly put it. "a show of force." British imperialism has truly gone raving mad!
   British imperialism thinks that it can frighten the Chinese people into submission with a few police truncheons, several decrees and some warships. This is an absolutely vain hope. Where there is oppression, there is resistance. Our patriotic compatriots in Hongkong put it well when they said the anti-British struggle would "escalate"' with the atrocity "escalation"' by the British authorities there. They have warned the British imperialists: the struggle has just begun, and the battles to come will be still more heroic and earth-shaking! Now that our patriotic compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon have started their counter-blows, they will certainly persevere in the struggle, fight the stubborn enemy, pursue the tottering foe until the British imperialists are pulled down and completely discredited!
   British imperialism is the extremely vicious colonial ruler of Hongkong, the enemy of the 4 million Chinese compatriots there and the enemy of the 700 million Chinese people. For more than a hundred veal's, this moribund, savage imperialism has subjected our compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon to brutal oppression. All of Hongkong's troops, police, secret service agents, courts, prisons and what not are tools for oppressing our compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon. By plundering and bleeding our compatriots white, British imperialism has plunged the broad masses of them into a state of Impoverishment. It also uses that which is most rotten and most decadent in Western culture to poison and corrupt our compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon. In recent years, the British Government has again collaborated with U.S. imperialism, trying its utmost to convert Hongkong into a U.S. base for the war of aggression against Vietnam and a base for opposing China. The Hongkong under British colonial rule is a haven for sin and crime, a hell-hole. For more than a century, British imperialism has done so much evil, incurred so many blood debts and committed such towering crimes; these accounts must be settled!
   Our patriotic compatriots In Hongkong and Kowloon are taking a step further to engage in a tit-for-tat struggle against British imperialism. It is a teacher by negative example, which, through the fascist outrages, is forcing our compatriots to unfold a campaign to hate, disdain and scorn British imperialism, and take all possible action — political, economic and cultural — to launch a powerful counter-attack against British imperialism's colonial rule. The heinous crimes of British imperialism for more than a hundred years in Hongkong must be exposed and made known in an all-out effort and on a colossal scale; the masses must be aroused to pour out their hearts in accusations; let every one of our compatriot's households there know this and make them see through the reactionary and rotten essence of British imperialism which is aggressive by nature.
   This struggle should mainly rely on Hongkong's working class, which is the main force of revolution. The vast number of young students must also be fully mobilized so that their movement is integrated with the workers' movement. With Hongkong's working class as the core, patriotic compatriots from the broad strata there should be mobilized and the spearhead of the struggle should be concentrated against U.S. and British imperialism, above all against British imperialism which directly rules Hongkong.
   Our great leader Chairman Mao has taught us: "What is a true bastion of iron? It is the masses, the millions upon millions of people who genuinely and sincerely support the revolution. That is the real iron bastion which it is impossible, and absolutely impossible, for any force on earth to smash. The counterrevolution cannot smash us; on the contrary, we shall smash it."
   No matter how wild and how rabid British imperialism is in Hongkong at present, as long as our patriotic compatriots unite further, get organized and form a tremendous revolutionary army and set loose a tidal anti-imperialist mass movement, they will be able to build up a real revolutionary bastion of iron which British imperialism absolutely cannot smash. On the contrary, vicious British imperialism will be smashed to pieces before this iron bastion!
   Our patriotic compatriots in Hongkong and the 700 million Chinese people absolutely cannot tolerate British imperialism's continued misdeeds in Hongkong and the bloody persecution of our patriotic compatriots.
   Patriotic compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon mobilize further, get organized, courageously and fiercely unfold the struggle against vicious British imperialism! Be ready at any lime to respond to the call of the great motherland and smash the reactionary rule of British imperialism! The fate of Hongkong will be decided by the patriotic compatriots there, by the 700 million Chinese people, absolutely not by decadent British imperialism.
   Patriotic compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon fight valiantly! In the motherland where the great proletarian cultural revolution has won tremendous victories, the millions of Red Guards support you, the hundreds of millions of revolutionary masses support you! The 700 million Chinese people, armed with Mao Tse-tung's thought, vow to serve as the powerful backing of their patriotic compatriots in Hongkong.
   Patriotic compatriots in Hongkong and Kowloon, advance courageously towards the great victory!
