A Split China as Reflected by Local Sing-Red Activists Frustrated in Beijing


A few thousand old people traveled to Beijing from various provinces to give performance of red songs at the Performance Hall of the Great Hall of the People. Their enthusiasm surged when they were told that leaders would attend their performance. As a result, they have not only paid for their own travel but also 2,000 yuan ($320) for the expense of the occasion.

However, when they arrived at Beijing, they were told that no leaders would attend their performance and the performance would be given at the Banquet Hall instead of the Performance Hall in the Great Hall of the People. It meant that their performance was not a formal one and there would be little media coverage.

They protested and the organizer was forced to cancel the performance and promise to refund each person 500 yuan ($80).

After 10 hours of protests, the organizer finally refunded them 2,000 yuan ($320) each and the protesters finally left.

Since Bo Xilai fell into disgrace, the central authority has regarded Bo’s Sing-Red activities as the “restoration of the Cultural Revolution” and banned such activities both in Chongqing’s People’s Square and Beijing’s Jingshan Park, the major venues of such activities.

However, as leftists remain influential in the country, there are still spontaneous Sing-Red activities in some provinces. Some local party leaders attached great importance to the performance and even told their directors of party propaganda departments to lead sing-red choirs to Beijing to take part in the performance.

It seems the leftists’ resistance has merely smothered instead of been extinguished after Bo’s defeat in the power struggle.

  29. I think everything wrote was very logical. But, think
    on this, what if you were to create a awesome title?

    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a headline to possibly get a
    person’s attention? I mean A Split China as Reflected by Local Sing-Red Activists Frustrated
    in Beijing | Tiananmen’s Tremendous Achievements is kinda boring.
    You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    article titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or
    a pic or two to grab people excited about what
    you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.
