Day in Hunan, Chairman Mao's Home Province
The message on the banner read: Down with
hanjian [those who commit crimes
of high treasons]! Free Bo
Xilai! Support Dai
Xu and Luo
Yuan [two of the most outspoken
PLA officers who have become the targets of Pentagon and
its paid agents and allies in China]! Chinese people
are not guinea pigs,
firmly reject poisonous GMO food!
Bo Xilai is a good official!
On the May Day, at Orange Island in Changsha, the capital
of Human Province, where Chairman
Mao composed Changsha (沁园春·长沙),
one of his most celebrated poems which is also regarded as
one of the best China's classic poems of all time,
a group of young Chinese displayed a banner with above message
for the government in Beijing.
Here is the poem that Chairman Mao composed at Orange Island
in the fall of 1925:
At the tip of the Orange Island,
Alone I stand in the autumn cold.
To the north the Xiang River ceaselessly flows,
In the front a panorama of red hills expansively unfold.
On the water that is so blue like crystal,
Hundreds boats swiftly come and go.
While eagles cleave the air above,
Fish glide in the limpid deep blow.
Under the sky of the chilly indigo,
All lives try to send free of their soul.
Mulling over this wild view,
I wonder who holds sway of this world.
I was here with a throng of comrades,
So vivid those hectic months and years.
We were young and full of beans,
No opinion was too bold to express.
We countered the rich and the privileged,
No more than a bunch of pests.
The memory is still fresh -
In the centre of the torrent,
We struck the water with arms bared,
Waves surged high to reach the mid of the air,
Halting the advance of the speedy jets.
We counter the 3 powerful premiers
No more than a bunch of pests
Three successive neo-Li Hongzhangs, the
most famous or infamous premier of the Manchu dynasty at the
turn of the 20th century
During his premiership, Li Hongzhang, an Anhui native like the
current premier Li Keqiang and vice-premier Wang Yang, duly signed
a series of unfair treaties with the invaded Western Powers and
Japan, handing over Chinese territories and a huge amount of
assets that directly resulted China's total bankruptcy, while
he himself pocketed immense kickbacks that allowed his descendents
to live in life of luxury in Europe until this very day.
