Cultural Revolution Slogans information
Stop by 153 Xi Dajie to see two red-blooded Cultural Revolution slogans that have survived on buildings within the courtyard. The one on the left intones: 工业学大庆 (‘Industry should learn from Dàqìng’); the rarer slogan on the right proclaims: 认真搞好斗批改 (‘Earnestly undertake struggle, criticism and reform’). They are of little interest to Chinese people, but are of heritage value in their own right.
