Subject: miracles of chairman mao
Our workshop is Saturday, March 25. Have you signed up already? (details here) If you have, you've received access to special readings. Here I just want to share an issue of Peking Review (now published as Beijing Review). This is the August 16, 1968 issue. For the workshop, please read the article on pages 21-25, "Mao Tse-tung's Thought Directs Us in Battle: How we removed a 45 kg tumour." It includes,
"After more than a dozen hours of arduous work, the fighters boundlessly loyal to Chairman Mao's revolutionary line finally succeeded in wholly removing the 45-kg tumour from Chang Chiu'chu's body.
"After she regained consciousness, Chang Chiu-chu was extremely excited when she felt her abdomen. The very first words she uttered were: 'Long live Chairman Mao! Chairman Mao has saved me!' Mao Tse-tung's thought gave her boundless strength and vitality."
Read the attached story for details.
You may find other parts of this issue of the Peking Review of interest. See it at https://www.marxists.org/subject/china/peking-review/1968/PR1968-33.pdf The first pages are devoted to quotations from Mao, but also check out Mao's comments on and photos from the struggle of African Americans for justice.
Please comment on these materials. Peking Review issues from those days can't be found on the current Beijing Review website (http://bjreview.com). You can find them at: https://www.marxists.org/subject/china/peking-review/
