43Revolutionary Workers of the Hairdressing Trade
in GuangzhouSource: Survey of China Mainland Press, No. 3776, 8 September 1966. Originally published in Yangcheng wanbao ( Yangcheng Evening News), 27 August 1966.Holding high the great red banner of Mao Zedong Thought and displaying vigorous revolutionary spirit, young revolutionary fighters in
Guangzhou have been busy putting up revolutionary big-character
posters in the streets to attack the old ideas, culture, customs, and
habits of all exploiting classes, in a determined effort to build
Guangzhou into a city extraordinarily proletarian and extraordinarily
revolutionary in character.This revolutionary rebel spirit displayed by these young fighters is
indeed splendid, for it has greatly boosted the morale of revolutionary
people and provided us with profound inspiration and enlightenment.
We want to learn from these young fighters and their revolutionary
rebel spirit by launching a proletarian revolutionary rebellion in the
hairdressing trade of the city. The following proposals are put forward
by us before all revolutionary workers of the hairdressing trade in
Vigorously and Speedily Eradicate Bizarre
Bourgeois Hair Styles
|All revolutionary workers of the hairdressing trade should ardently and resolutely support the revolutionary actions of the young
revolutionary fighters and the revolutionary masses. We should
warmly welcome their criticisms and ardently support big-character
posters that speak out against us. We should provide the young revolutionary fighters and the revolutionary masses beforehand with necessary facilities such as tables, benches, brush pens, ink, paper, and paste
so they can write big-character posters and paste them up on the walls.|
|All revolutionary workers of the hairdressing trade should
promptly take action and make revolution alongside the young revolutionary fighters and the revolutionary masses in a highly militant spirit.|
