China's Cultural Revolution, 1966-1969: Not a Dinner Party

By Michael Schoenhals | Go to book overview

soiling the latrine! Today we force them to perform some light physical labor to stir up their putrid and rotten souls and to destroy their petty bourgeois dreams! A joyous event like this one could only have taken place in today's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.

Long live the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution!

Sweep away all ox-monsters and snake-demons!

On Hunger Strike to Protest Illegal Political Persecution

Kuai Dafu

Source: The text of this protest note ("Jueshi kangyi feifa zhengzhi pohai") by a twenty-one-year-old student in the Chemistry Department is reproduced in Qinghua University Jinggangshan Red Guards Propaganda Team, ed., Qinghua daxue dazibao xuan: Kuai Dafu tongzhi de dazibao (Selection of Big-Character Posters from Qinghua University: Big-Character Posters by Comrade Kuai Dafu) ( Beijing: Beijing renmin yinshuachang gonghui, n.d.), p. 39.

To the Qinghua University Work Team:

I am still a citizen of the People's Republic of China and I still enjoy the inviolable right of personal freedom!

But what now?

I step outside and you put me under surveillance!

I want to make a phone call and you will not let me!

Today I wanted to walk out the Xinzhai Gate and you would not let me!

I wanted to visit Qiangzhai and you would not let me! You even turned violent and there was bloodshed!

I wanted to go to the [Party] Center but you would not let me!

You want to break the law!? You want to blockade the Center?

No way! You will never succeed!
