    TEN THOUSAND CHINESE RESIDENTS OF THE PORTUGUESE ENCLAVE OF MACAO, IN SOUTHERN CHINA, PLEDGED TO HOLD THEMSELVES READY TO TIGHTEN THE NOOSE AROUND THE NECKS OF THE IMPERIALISTS' AT A HUGE RALLY IN MACAO YESTERDAY (FRIDAY).

    THE RALLY WAS HELD AT A FOOTBALL STADIUM IN MACAO TO CELEBRATE THE PORTUGUESE ACCEPTANCE OF A DEMAND TO BAN ACTIVITIES OF NATIONALIST CHINESE IN MACAO. THIS WAS AMONG THE CONDITIONS ACCEPTED BY PORTUGUESE AUTHORITIES TO END TENSION IN THE ENCLAVE FOLLOWING THE ALLEGED ASSAULT OF SEVERAL CHINESE STUDENTS SOME WEEKS AGO.

    THE RALLY APPROVED A RESOLUTION PRAISING CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG, WHICH SAID IN PART THAT THE MACAO CHINESE GUARDED THE SOUTHERN GATEWAY TO THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC.

    THE RESOLUTION URGED THE CHINESE PEOPLE OF MACAO TO REMAIN POLITICALLY VIGILANT EVEN THOUGH PORTUGUESE AUTHORITIES HAD ACCEPTED THEIR DEMANDS.

    SIX CHINESE GUNBOATS WERE MOORED OFF MACAO DURING THE RALLY. IT IS REPORTED THAT SEVERAL THOUSAND PEOPLE FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA CROSSED THE BORDER TO ATTEND THE RALLY, AND THERE WAS A DELEGATION OF HONG KONG CHINESE.
