CCP Central Committee Secretariat, State Council Secretariat

(ZBF No. (1989)9, 25 August 1989)

Since suppressing the Beijing counterrevolutionary riot, Western, Hong Kong and Taiwan news organs have started rumours about us on a large scale, and launched vicious attacks,

and have disseminated their reactionary propaganda materials inside our territory through all sorts of channels. The United States’ News Office has strengthened reactionary propaganda, and has broadcast its worldwide television images into our country’s ether during the period of the riot. Some United States, Hong Kong and Taiwan broadcast companies have produced large amounts of reactionary videotapes, and prepare to disseminate them inside our borders. The “News Workers Association in America” has published a “Guide to News Freedom”, claiming that they want to “break through the news blackouts on the Chinese mainland, and diffuse information about the students’ democratic movement and the truth about the bloody suppression by the CCP to the Chinese mainland through all sorts of means”. The “China Information Network Centre” in the Eastern region of the United States spreads around that it wants to incite a global “blood transfusion movement”, and use all sorts of “pipelines” to infiltrate us. A small number of Hong Kong trading companies have published newspaper announcements, indicating that they may provide the fax numbers of  number of organs in Guangdong province, in order to disseminate overseas reactionary propaganda in the interior through this channel.

In the light of this situation, the Party Centre and the State Council have charged the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of Radio, Film and Television, the Administration of Press and Publications, the General Administration of Customs and other departments to respectively research and formulate concrete measures to resist overseas reactionary propaganda and political infiltration. Until provisions or notices have been issued by the abovementioned departments, the relevant matters are hereby notified as follows:

II, Work units that have installations permitting the reception of foreign, Hong Kong and Taiwan satellite television programmes, may receive relevant programmes if it is truly required for work and with approval of higher-level controlling departments; departments who do not require this for work, shall immediately cease the reception of foreign, Hong Kong and Taiwan television programmes. All foreign-related hotels shall without exception cease the reception and broadcast of foreign, Hong Kong and Taiwan television programmes; as for the question whether or not commercial information in these programmes may be broadcast, this is to be handled according to the regulations to be formulated by the Ministry of Radio, Film and Television and other departments.

III, Work units having telephone and fax installations shall make clear regulations for the use and management of these installations, it is prohibited for personnel using and managing these installations to use fax equipment to receive and send reactionary propaganda, those already having received them must immediately submit them to the local public security organs.

关于抵制海外反动宣传和

政治渗透的通知

(中办发9号·1989年8月25日)

平息北京反革命暴乱以来,西方及港台的新闻机构对我大肆造谣,恶毒攻击,并通过各种途径将其反动宣传品向我境内传播。美国新闻署为加强反动宣传,于暴乱期间,将其环球电视图像发送到我国上空。美国和港台一些广播公司制作了大量反动录像带,准备向我境内传播。在美成立的“旅美新闻从业者协会”出版了《新闻自由导报》,声称要“突破中国大陆新闻封锁,以各种方式把学生民运消息和中共血腥镇压真相传遍中国大陆”。美国东部地区的“中国信息联络中心”扬言要发起世界性的“大输血运动”,利用各种“管道”向我渗透。个别香港贸易公司公开登报,表示可提供广东省一些机构的传真号码,以便通过这个途径将海外反动宣传传到内地。

针对以上情况,党中央、国务院已责成公安部、国家安全部、广播电影电视部、新闻出版署、海关总署等部门分别研究制定抵制海外反动宣传和政治渗透的具体措施。在上述部门的规定或通知下发之前,现对有关事项通知如下:
