    THE masses of the revolutionary people and commanders and fighters of the Chinese People's Liberation Army throughout the country give their firm support to the resolution mentioned in the Communique of the Enlarged 12th Plenary Session of the Eighth Central Committee of the Party to expel Liu Shao-chi from the Party once and for all, to dismiss him from all posts both inside and outside the Party, and to continue to settle accounts with him and his accomplices for their counter-revolutionary crimes in betraying the Party and the country. With the deepest revolutionary indignation, they have set going a powerful upsurge of revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation angrily denouncing the towering crimes of the renegade, traitor and scab Liu Shao-chi and aimed to thoroughly eliminate the poisonous influence of his counter-revolutionary revisionist ideas.
   In the past few days, men and women, old and young, have taken part in mass meetings to denounce Liu Shao-chi's counter-revolutionary crimes everywhere — in the workshops, the farm fields, the army companies and urban communities.
In the factories and mines, every workshop, shift or group, machine site or working face has become a position for criticism and repudiation of Liu Shao-chi. Workers have said: Exposing the big scoundrel Liu Shao-chi and expelling him from the revolutionary ranks is a great victory for Mao Tse-tung's thought and for the great proletarian cultural revolution. In Anyuan, the cradle of the workers' movement personally set going by Chairman Mao, the miners have a bitter hatred for Liu Shao-chi. They said: As early as the 1920s we suffered from Liu Shao-chi's ruthless persecution. After liberation, this big careerist shamelessly distorted history. The revolutionary flames of the Anyuan general strike were unquestionably lighted by Chairman Mao himself, but Liu Shao-chi tried to negate Chairman Mao's great achievement and steal it for his own. He attempted to use Anyuan as a position to make political capital and restore capitalism. How poisonous!
   Hsu Sheng-yuan, a seventy-year-old worker who took part in that general strike, saw with his own eyes the brazen way in which Liu Shao-chi collaborated with the imperialist elements and capitalists and his sell-out of the interests of the working class at Anyuan. With deep hatred and using his own recollection of events, he asked someone to write out for him an indictment entitled "Scab Features of Liu Shao-chi'1 listing one by one this scab's crimes.
   Workers of the Wuhan No. 4 Cotton Mill revealed Liu Shao-chi's hostility to the workers and concern for the capitalists when he "inspected" this mill in 1956. Old worker Shen Kuei-ying said: "Liu Shao-chi's heart is linked with those of the capitalists, he is a hundred per cent big scab and lackey of the bourgeoisie!" She related how Liu Shao-chi brought his wife to "inspect" the mill at a time when the socialist transformation of capitalist industry and commerce was deepening throughout the country. No sooner had the mill's top capitalist entered the room than Liu Shao-chi, full of smiles, bowed to him and shook hands with him, poured tea, passed cigarettes and finally drew the man to sit beside him on the sofa. He showered the capitalist with solicitude. When this capitalist told him how much he received in monthly salary and from the annual fixed interest on his previous investments. Liu Shao-chi asked with concern: "Probably not enough?" And what was his attitude to the workers? When the workers wanted to see him, he ordered all the doors and windows to be tightly closed. Not a single one was allowed in to see him. When representatives of the workers went to see him, he sat like a judge and only asked a few questions. Before they could give the answers, he switched the topic.
   Assembling before China's first new-type high-pressure boiler which they themselves had successfully installed, workers of the Shanghai Yangshupu Power Plant angrily criticized and repudiated the counterrevolutionary revisionist line pushed by Liu Shao-chi peddling such nonsense as "relying on the specialists to run the factories" and the "philosophy of going slow." Workers took the floor to denounce the crimes committed by Liu Shao-chi's agents in the plant to obstruct installation of the boiler. They said: Though this boiler was produced in 1960, the capitalist roaders and reactionary bourgeois technical "authorities" stifled the workers' creativeness. They would not let the workers install it. Rain or shine, it lay out in the open. In the great cultural revolution the workers took over technical power and successfully installed this boiler after overcoming all sorts of difficulties and working valiantly for 23 days and nights. The workers said that this event had displayed the daring enterprise of the Chinese working class, so they proudly called it the "enterprise boiler.” Again and again the meeting roared out the slogan: "Down with Liu Shao-chi, lackey of imperialism, modern revisionism and the Kuomintang reactionaries!"
   The workers have also further criticized and repudiated Liu Shao-chi's sinister book on "self-cultivation*" and the theories he dished up such as the theory of "docile tools,'' the theory of "the dying out of class struggle" and the theory of "inner-Party peace." Workers of Yenan Radio Factory, a factory located on the site of the former Yenan College of Marxist-Leninist Studies, plunged themselves vigorously into the battle to denounce Liu Shao-chi. It was in this place, twenty-nine years ago, that Liu Shao-chi peddled his notorious big poisonous weed — the sinister book on "self-cultivation." Now the workers denounced its pernicious influence on themselves. Liu Hai-tao, a worker, said: "Liu Shao-chi attempted to make us forget the actual class struggle and the dictatorship of the proletariat. This is really a monstrous crime! Our working class is determined to wage the class struggle and firmly defend the dictatorship of the proletariat! We must conscientiously study Mao Tse-tung's thought and closely follow Chairman Mao to make revolution all our lives!"

In the countryside. The masses of poor and lower-middle peasants make the fields a battlefront for criticizing and repudiating Liu Shao-chi. They gather together for meetings of criticism and repudiation during work breaks. Jao Hsing-li, a national model farmer and Vice-Chairman of the Hupeh Provincial Revolutionary Committee, has put into words what the peasants feel. He said at a criticism and repudiation meeting: "In the 19 years since the founding of New China, there have been extremely sharp and complicated struggles between the two classes, the two roads and the two lines in the rural areas. Chairman Mao has led the masses of poor and lower-middle peasants in carrying out land reform, organizing mutual-aid teams, developing co-operatives and establishing people's communes. He has led us on to the broad road of socialism and communism. However, at every stage of development, there has always been a force from the Right or from the extreme 'Left,' that is, 'Left' in form but Right in essence, which obstinately tried to obstruct Chairman Mao's proletarian revolutionary line. A handful of class enemies did their utmost to sabotage the land reform; they tried desperately to slash the number of co-operatives and wildly advocated the 'san zi yi bao' (the extension of plots for private use and of free markets, the increase of small enterprises with sole responsibility for their own profits or losses, the fixing of output quotas based on the household) and the 'four freedoms' (freedom of usury, of hiring labour, land sale and private enterprise). They did all this in a vain attempt to lead us poor and lower-middle peasants on to an evil road. Where does the root cause of all this lie? Through the great proletarian cultural revolution, we have come to see clearly that the root cause is Liu Shao-chi, the big renegade, the arch criminal. We have a bitter hatred for this No. 1 capitalist roader in the Party; he is our deadly enemy."
   In the Taoyuan Brigade of the Luwangzhuang Commune in Funing County, Hope) Province, the commune members, the moment they heard the news of the publication of the 12th Plenary Session's communique, streamed through the streets in Celebration. This brigade was once made an experimental ground by Liu Shao-chi in his sinister attempt to restore capitalism. In late 1963, he sent his wife to Taoyuan to direct the socialist education movement there, frantically pushed his counter-revolutionary revisionist line and ruthlessly repressed and persecuted the poor and lower-middle peasants and the revolutionary cadres. The poor and lower-middle peasants here have a bitter hatred for Liu Shao-chi. On hearing the resolution of the 12th Plenary Session, they unanimously declared: "It is really most gratifying that the big scoundrel Liu Shao-chi has been expelled from the Party!" Chao Shu-chun, the former Party branch deputy secretary of Taoyuan Brigade, was persecuted to death by Liu Shao-chi and his wife. When Chao's widow heard the broadcast, she was moved to tears. She led her three children to cheer before the portrait of Chairman Mao: "Long live Chairman Mao!" She exhorted her children, saying: "Chairman Mao has saved our whole family for the second time; you must truly follow Chairman Mao's teachings and follow him in making revolution!"

In the P.L.A. The masses of commanders and fighters of the Liberation Army, with feelings of boundless love for Chairman Mao and deep hatred for Liu Shao-chi, have held many repudiation meetings. They are determined to thoroughly refute and discredit the renegade, traitor and scab Liu Shao-chi. The P.L.A. Unit has organized groups for criticism and repudiation which write articles to unmask the arch renegade Liu Shao-chi. They revealed in their articles that Liu Shao-chi had long been engaged in criminal activities For betraying the revolution and capitulating to the enemy. A conclusive proof of this is that during the stage of the democratic revolution, he lavishly praised Chiang Kai-shek. In 1937, soon after the Japanese imperialists launched their war of aggression against China, Liu Shao-chi advocated that everything should go through Chiang Kai-shek and be subordinated to him; he glorified Chiang Kai-shek as the "leader in restating the Japanese and in building the country." At the end of the War of Resistance Against Japan, he urged our Party to immediately hand over its army and the Liberated Areas to Chiang Kai-shek, asserting that Chiang Kai-shek "can build the country in a democratic way together with us."' After the founding of New China, Liu Shao-chi, stepping into the shoes of Chiang Kai-shek, continued to oppose Chairman Mao's revolutionary line, energetically engaged in activities for a capitalist restoration, and thus committed further towering crimes against the Chinese people, thereby proving himself to be an out-and-out long-standing counter-revolutionary and Chiang Kai-shek's No. 1 agent in our Party.
   Commanders and fighters in the organizations of the armoured units also cited numerous facts to expose the counter-revolutionary features of the big scab Liu Shao-chi. They have declared: For many years past, Liu Shao-chi shamelessly reversed the facts of history, glorifying himself as the "leader of the workers' movement." But in fact he always sabotaged the workers' movement. He is a big scab who committed innumerable crimes and whose hands were stained with the blood of the workers. Harbouring an inveterate haired tor the working class, he vociferously slandered it as "infantile" and "unreliable." Even after the founding of New China, he openly called on the bourgeoisie to "struggle" against the working class and gave the reactionary capitalists much advice.
   The fighters have one after another further exposed Liu Shao-chi as an accomplice of U.S. imperialism and the deadly enemy of the revolutionary people. The high tide of denunciation of Liu Shao-chi continues to surge forward.
   The wrathful wave of revolutionary mass criticism and repudiation condemning Liu Shao-chi's crimes is sweeping the whole country and is developing in depth.
