  1. By Zahra, Olin, Flora and Elliot

  2. Introduction • Mao had been forced to step down after the failing plan of the great leap forward. • The moderates were turning china into a capitalist country and Mao was outraged and was angry because the moderates were destroying what the communists had worked for. • Mao eventually got back to power except like all the other times Mao was in power it had major consequences.

  3. Re-education Education China’s industry The people of china The Red guard. Consequences The CCP party members Entertainment The peoples rights Lin Biao’s Death

  4. Entertainment • The red guard confiscated and burnt all foreign books • Hobbies such as playing chess were banned. • Plays and movies had to be honoring Mao • Nothing foreign was allowed into china e.g. music

  5. The Red Guard • After Mao had organized them they became hostile and out of control. • They paraded in the streets of Beijing and destroyed anything that seemed bourgeois or capitalist. E.g. cutting off women’s hair which was cut in a foreign style. They did what they wanted with no care for the other communist people • Red guard went wild in 1967 law and order had broken down in china. • The red guard killed an estimated 400000 people and they had battered, tortured and humiliated countless more.

  6. The People of China • The people of china throughout the revolution had been persecuted on the grounds of “the more knowledge you have, the more counter-revolutionary you are”. • If anyone foresaw a problem and tried to correct it they were deemed a reactionary or a bourgeois (middle class citizen and communist was that every man was equal) • China was losing their intellectuals because they knew china was not going to fare so well throughout the revolution.

  7. Education Young people were sent to re-education camps as reactionaries. They missed out on years of education. •Those who were granted education were only taught to praise and love Mao and Communism. • The chances of going back home after being send to re-education camps were 3 in a 1000. Examinations were banned, so the only education available was either to learn to praise Mao or learn from peasants.

  8. The CCP Party members • Mao Zedong’s death.  • Mao died at the age of 83 on 9th September 1976. • The Gang of Four which seemed to be in a better position was planning to take control. • Mao’s post of Chairman was given to an unknown politician who had risen fast within the party, namely Hau Guofeng. • Hau was given control almost over everything. even Mao had never experienced such a power. • Most of the CCP Party members from either sides of the wings of communism were disappearing or killed.

  9. The People's Rights • The people of china basically had no rights • Freedom of speech has long since been taken away from them in “the hundred flowers” campaign. • As we have said before they weren't allowed hobbies • Personal items were destroyed if not worshiping communism or Mao. • They were being forced to do things e.g. the Re-education process.

  10. Education • Not many had a high enough standard of education to study out of China. • Only those who supported the Cultural Revolution willingly were allowed into a university. “Kids striving to grow to be a revolutionary” - translation

  11. China’s industry • China’s industry and crop production dropped yet again dramatically • Since millions were being taken out of the city factory work decreased. • The red guard were slowing the industries down by destroying what they thought was anti-revolutionary.

  12. Re-education • The outcome was massive purges and forced relocations of urban teenagers, which ruined lives and caused fatalities. • most of the red guard were sent to the country side to be re-educated. • Mao was in a way de-modernizing china with the re-education.

  13. Lin Biao's Death Lin Biao’s Death. ·Mao wanted to assume power quickly and began to strike an operation to stop Lin Biao from gaining too much power which would eventually over thrown Mao’s position. ·Premier Zhou Enlai, Mao’s wife Jiang Qing joined forces with Mao to work against Lin Biao. ·One of Lin Biao’s party official Chen Boda disappeared from Public in 1970 mysteriously. ·In September 1971, Lin’s plane crashed when he attempted to flee to the USSR after the failure of assassination plot against Mao. Premier Zhou Enlai benefited the most from Lin Biao’s death. He tried to put China back towards stability. A new education system and helped some of the expelled officials to get back into the Party.

  14. Conclusion Although Mao wanted to be remembered as a great leader of china I cannot say he actually fulfilled his dreams he, could be remembered as great leader at times of war but not at leading a country, his mistakes outweigh his own deeds. Twice he came to power after communism had taken over and twice had he lead china astray in to chaos. “too weed out poisonous weeds among flagrant flowers” I think the only poisonous weed in china was Mao himself.
