  • Description

    MACAO, THE TINE PORTUGUESE PROVINCE OFF THE MAINLAND OF CHINA, CELEBRATED ITS NATIONAL DAY YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) WITHOUT THE CUSTOMARY PORTRAITS OF MAO TSE-TUNG HUNG ALL OVER THE CITY.

    ALTHOUGH THERE WERE PLENTY OF RED FLAGS IN EVIDENCE, THE ONLY PORTRAIT OF CHAIRMAN MAO IN EVIDENCE THIS YEAR WAS AT THE GATE OF TIENANMUN IN DOWNTOWN MACAO.

    AT THIS YEAR'S MACAO NATIONAL DAY, INSTEAD OF PORTRAITS OF MAO, BANNERS BEARING ONE OF HIS SLOGANS WERE PUT UP ALL OVER THE TOWN. THE MOTTO OF THE SLOGAN READ: "GRASP REVOLUTION AND PROMOTE PRODUCTION AND OTHER WORK IN PREPAREDNESS AGAINST WAR".

    OVER 3,000 OF MACAO'S LEADING COMMUNISTS ATTENDED A MEETING AT ALGERIA THEATRE, WHILE TOWNSFOLK OUTSIDE WITNESSED A NOISY AND SPECTACULAR FIREWORK DISPLAY.

    IN THE HARBOUR A DECORATED GUNBOAT FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA WAS IN EVIDENCE.
