  • Description

    THE CAMPAIGN IN PEKING AGAINST LIU SHAO-CHI, THE HEAD OF STATE OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, BY THE SUPPORTERS OF MAO TSE-TUNG, THE COMMUNIST PARTY CHAIRMAN, REACHED A NEW STAGE YESTERDAY (MONDAY) WHEN HE WAS DESCRIBED -- THOUGH STILL UNNAMED -- BY THE PEOPLE'S DAILY NEWSPAPER AS A "TRAITOR" IN PARTICULARLY STRONG OUTBURST. LAST TUESDAY, THOUSANDS OF RED GUARDS AND OTHERS MARCHED THROUGH PEKING IN A MASSIVE DEMONSTRATION AGAINST THE HEAD OF STATE, CHANTING SLOGANS, CALLING FOR HIS DOWNFALL AND THAT OF HIS SUPPORTERS.

    TUESDAY'S MARCH CULMINATED THREE DAYS OF DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST LIU SHAO-CHI. COLUMNS OF MARCHERS CONTINUED TO PARADE ALONG PEKING'S MAIN CHANGAN (ETERNAL PEACE) BOULEVARD PAST THE GOLDEN-ROOFED GATE IN LIU SHAO-CHI'S OFFICIAL RESIDENCE. THE DEMONSTRATIONS CHOKED PEKING'S STREETS FROM MORNING TILL NIGHT.

    (THE NEW CHINA NEWS AGENCY YESTERDAY QUOTED THE PEOPLE'S DAILY AS DESCRIBING LIU SHAO-CHI'S POLITICAL THINKING AS "A SHAMELESS TRAITOR'S PHILOSOPHY" AND ADDED: "WE MUST RESOLUTELY TOPPLE THE NUMBER ONE PARTY PERSON IN AUTHORITY TAKING THE CAPITALIST ROAD AND THE HANDFUL OF REACTIONARY REVISIONISTS UNDER HIM AND NEVER ALLOW THEM TO RISE AGAIN.").
