  • Description

    THE AFTERMATH OF THE CULTURAL UPHEAVALS IN THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND THE MASSIVE RED GUARD RALLIES IN PEKING HAS BEEN TO LEAVE THE STREETS OF THE CAPITAL PLASTERED WITH A BEWILDERING MASS OF POSTERS, WALL NEWSPAPERS AND SLOGANS.

    MOST OF THEM ARE OLD NEWS. SINCE EARLY MARCH, RED GUARDS HAVE BEEN FORBIDDEN TO PUBLISH INFORMATION IN WALL BULLETINS WITHOUT FIRST GETTING PERMISSION FROM THE UNITED RED GUARDS ASSOCIATION IN PEKING.

    IN THE STREETS, ON THE WALLS OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND EVEN OVER SHOP WINDOWS, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF POSTERS THICKLY PLASTERED OVER OTHERS AND TELLING THE CONFUSED STORY OF ACCUSATION AND COUNTER-ACCUSATION WHICH HAS BEEN THE FEATURE OF RECENT EVENTS IN THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA.

    BUT PEKING IS QUIET NOW, AND SQUARES AND PLAZAS IN THE CAPITAL WHICH WERE ONCE CONSTANTLY FILLED WITH DEMONSTRATING CROWDS, ARE RETURNING TO NORMAL.

    RED GUARDS STILL MARCH THROUGH THE STREETS, BUT REPORTS FROM PEKING SAY THAT CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG HAS WARNED THEM TO BE MORE CAREFUL OF THEIR POWER IN FUTURE AND CALLED ON THEM TO RETURN TO THEIR STUDIES.

    YET THE PAPERWORK OF THE CULTURAL REVOLUTION REMAINS EVERYWHERE IN THE STREETS OF PEKING.
