Comrade Chou En-lai's Memorial Speech

Filled with grief, we pay last respects to Comrade Hsieh Fu-chih, an outstanding member of the Communist Party of China and a staunch fighter of the Chinese people.

Peking Municipal Committee, Chairman of the Peking Municipal Revolutionary Committee and First Political Commissar of the Peking Garrison Peking Pays Last Respects to Comrade Fu-chih suffered from cancer of the stomach two years ago. After a surgical operation, doctors and nurses did their best to give him medical treatment and care and members of his family worked in active co-operation. Comrade Fu-chih himself, in particular, put up a persistent and tenacious struggle against the disease. Yet the long medical treatment was to no avail in the end because of en extensive metastasis of the cancer. His heart stopped beating at 13:37 hours on March 28. 1972, at the age of 63.

Comrade Hsieh Fu-chih came from a poor peasant family. He was a carpenter in his teens. He had been in the revolutionary ranks ever since his youth. He joined the Chinese Workers' and Peasants' Red Army in 1929. He was admitted into the Communist Party of China in 1931. During the Red Army period, he served as a fighter, squad leader, platoon commander, deputy company commander, company political instructor, head of regimental, divisional and corps political departments and worked on a county committee and a provincial committee of the Chinese Communist Party. During the period of the War of Resistance Against Japan, he was political commissar of a regiment, a brigade, a military sub-area and a column of the Eighth Route Army and acting commander of a military area and concurrently secretary of a regional committee of the Chinese Communist Party. During the War of Liberation, he served as political commissar and commander of a column of the Second Field Army and political commissar of an army. After liberation he became Secretary of the Eastern Szechuan Area Party Committee, First Secretary of the Yunnan Provincial Party Committee, and Commander and concurrently Political Commissar of the Eastern Szechuan and Yunnan Military Area and the Kunming Units of the P.L.A., and Commander and concurrently Political Commissar of the Public Security Forces of the PLA.

Comrade Hsieh Fu-chih’s life was one devoted to the revolution. In the course of the protracted revolutionary wars and in the course of socialist revolution and construction, especially during the great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, Comrade Hsieh Fu-chih, loyal to the Party and the people, fought unremittingly in implementing and defending Chairman MAO'S prole¬tarian revolutionary line. Under the leadership of the Party Central Committee and Chairman Mao, he, over the decades, fought heroically, worked selflessly, remained modest and prudent, gave play to the style of plain living and hard struggle; he was open and above-board and served the people diligently and conscien¬tiously. He devoted his whole life and energy to the liberation of the Chinese, people and the cause of communism.

The death of Comrade Hsieh Fu-chih is a great loss to our Party and our army. The people throughout the country feet deeply grieved. As we express our condolences on Comrade Hsieh Fu-chih’s death, we must learn from him his revolutionary spirit and fine qualities of the proletariat, transform our grief into strength and, under the leadership of the Party Cen¬tral Committee headed by the great leader Chairman Mao and under the guidance of Chairman Mao's pro¬letarian revolutionary line, unite to win still greater victories!
