Our radio stations are important tools of the proletariat dictatorship, in the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, the revolutionary masses’ struggle with those factions marching the capitalist road who control the radio stations is completely correct and necessary. The Centre has decided: all radio stations where such situations occur, are to be subject to military control by the People’s Liberation Army, editing and broadcast of local programming is ceased, and only programmes from the Central broadcast stations are transmitted. Revolutionary masses who have already entered radio stations shall immediately withdraw, the capitalist roader factions in radio stations shall be handed over to the masses for struggle after leaving the radio stations. Leaders among the masses who have something to say, shall go to the middle of the masses, and listen to the opinions and criticism of the masses.
All localities’ radio stations shall without exception use the original name of People’s Radio Station, this may not change
