Sample text

In October 1976, at the meeting of the Standing Committee of the Politburo, Zhang Chunqiao, Yao Wenyuan and Wang Hongwen were arrested on the orders of Hua Guofeng. Jiang Qing was later arrested in her home, accused of planning to assassinate Hua. The fact that the Gang of Four’s downfall came so soon after the death of Mao suggests that without his support, its power base was very fragile. The Gang of Four lacked support in the 16-member Politburo and in the PLA. Only in Shanghai did security forces seem sympathetic to the Gang of Four, but this was not sufficient on its own.

The China Journal has been published by the Australian National University for over 30 years and features articles on various topics regarding modern China. According to Source F, why was Hua considered politically weak? Where Hua would have gone in policy terms had he retained authority is moot but, with regard to the early manifestations of reform, he was clearly a key supporter. ’ In any case, Hua’s weakness did not lie in his policy program, and was certainly not due to a rigid adherence to ‘whatever’ Mao had endorsed.

This was done to rectify the original CCP declaration in 1976 that it was ‘counter-revolutionary’ and therefore had had to be suppressed by security forces. This placed Hua, who had been responsible as Minister of Public Security for the repression of these protests after the death of Zhou Enlai, in a very awkward position indeed. Hua resigns Hua continued to lose control of various divisions of the government. He was not purged, but his political power shrank rapidly. The Politburo was divided into three factions: Hua’s, Deng’s and Marshal Ye’s, the latter of which often acted as the decisive faction in support of Deng.
