Central Committee, State Council, State Military Commission, Central Cultural Revolution Small Group

ZF No. [67]303

Instruction from Chairman Mao: act accordingly

23 September

All provincial, municipal and autonomous region Revolutionary Committees (Small Planning Groups), Military Control Commissions, all large military regions and provincial military regions.
Recently, it has been discovered that there are privately established radio stations in some localities, broadcasting unlawful factional radio programmes, in some localities, there are privately-established secret broadcast stations, wireless transceivers and transceiver networks, editing without authorization and using code, and conduct secret communication and signals. It must be strictly pointed out that: these matters violate Party discipline and State laws, and are absolutely not permitted. This sort of method gravely destroys the Cultural Revolution, and destroys the dictatorship of the proletariat. It has not only created chaos in the broadcast of radio waves, and influenced the regular broadcasts of central and local radio stations, but also it gravely exposed Party and State secrets, causing grave damage to the Party and State politically. Some of these are run by hidden counterrevolutionaries and enemy spies, and must attract our high vigilance. Broadcast stations, radio stations, transceivers, etc., can only be propaganda and communication organs of the Party, government and army after the Party Centre with Chairman Mao in the lead has approved their establishment, and can only reflect the basic interests of the proletariat dictatorship, they are absolutely not permitted to serve some faction. They must strictly abide by Party and State discipline and regulations, and may absolutely not express anarchist attitudes. Therefore, the Centre reiterates: all privately established broadcast stations, radio stations, transceivers, etc., shall be completely cancelled unconditionally, immediately from this day. It is strictly prohibited to create and use codes secretly. No person may, under whatever excuse or in whatever form, set up broadcast stations, radio stations, transceivers, etc. If it transpires in the future that there still are privately established broadcast stations, radio stations or transceivers, that codes are created and used and other matters, it shall be punished under State law, and the local garrison commands, police commands, garrisons or other military leading organs are to implement this.

This matter may be propagated in town and country to the broad revolutionary masses.

Central Committee

23 September 1967

共中央、国务院、中央军委、中央文革小组关于取缔私设电台、广播电台、报话机的命令
毛主席批示:

照办。

九月二十三日
近日来发现有的地方私设广播电台,播送违法的派别性的广播节目,有的地方私设秘密电台、无线电报话机和报话网,擅自编造和使用密码,进行秘密通讯和通话。必须严肃指出:这些事是违反党纪国法、绝对不允许的。这种做法严重破坏了文化大革命,破坏了无产阶级专政。它不但造成了无线电波的传播混乱,影响了中央和地方电台正常广播,而且严重地泄露了党和国家机密,给党和国家造成政治上的严重损失。其中有一些,就是暗藏的反革命分子、敌特分子搞的,必须引起我们高度警惕。

电台、广播电台、报话机等,只能是在以毛主席为首的党中央批准后设立的党、政、军的宣传通讯机关,只能反映无产阶级专政的根本利益,决不允许用来为某一个派别服务。它必须严格遵守党和国家的纪律和规定,决不允许出现无政府状态。为此,中央重申:一切私设的电台、广播电台、报话机等,应自即日起立即无条件地全部撤除。严禁私自编造和使用密码。任何人不得以任何借口、任何形式私设电台、广播电台、报话机等。今后如再发现有私自设立电台、广播电台、报话机,编造和使用密码等事,当以国法论处,并由当地卫戍司令部、警备司令部、驻军或其他军事领导机关执行。

此件可在城乡广大革命群众中宣读。
