Background: The group of fortyone young Chinese, a fighting collective armed with the great thought of Mao Tse-tung who had carried on a heroic struggle against the Indonesian reactionaries arrived in Peking to Chairman Mao's side on Dec. 27th. Imbued with ardent love and profound feelings for the great leader Chairman Mao, they sang the song 'Chairman Mao is dearer to us then our parents'. Arriving on the same train were two representatives of the victimized Chinese nationals, who had waged a valiant struggle against the atrocities committed by a group of Indonesian fascist thugs on November ninth in the overseas Chinese middle school in Medan.
More than one thousand and five hundred people including representatives of the reception committee of the Peking People for the 41 Overseas Revolutionary Youth; Liao Cheng-chih and other leading personnel of departments concerned, red guards, workers, people's commune members, liberation armymen and commanders, government cadres and representatives of returned overseas Chinese, were at the railway station to give the most rousing welcome to the young heroes who had persisted in upholding China's national honour and in defending China's national dignity. Everybody enthusiastically hailed the great victory of the invincible thought of Mao Tse-tung.
Tears filled the eyes of the young overseas Chinese fighters as they waved their red-covered 'Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung.' and cheered repeatedly long live, long live Chairman Mao!' and 'Long live the invincible thought of Mao Tse-tung!
Chairman Mao's young red fighters than went forward and pinned big
red flowers with ribbons carrying quotations from Chairman Mao and shining badges with Chairman Mao's portroit on their comrades-in-arms who have triumphantly returned from the front line of the international class struggle. They also put red-guard arm-bands on the young returned overseas Chinese. The singing of 'The Helsman Sets the Ocean Course' and 'Chairman Mao is Dearer to Us Than Our Parents' - mingled with the rhythmic shouting of 'Long live Chairman Mao, a long, long life to him!.' 'Long live the victory of the great proletarian cultural revolution!', 'Down with U.S. Imperialism!', 'Down with Soviet Modern Revisionism'' and 'Down with the Indonesian Reactionaries!'
