W13 – Latest Instruction by Chairman Mao

The main body of the stamp picture is the latest instruction issued by Mao Zedong in early August 1968. The specific content is: “China has a population of 700 million, and the working class is the leading class. We must give full play to the leadership role of the working class in the Cultural Revolution and in all work. The working class should also constantly improve its political consciousness in the struggle.” By August 1968, large-scale social movements in the “Cultural Revolution” had basically passed. According to the deployment of Mao Zedong, the main task was transferred to the third stage of “buying, approving, and reforming”, and the key was transferred to the superstructure department. The main force of the movement was also changed from a young student to a working class. The “Mao Zedong Thought Propaganda Team” composed of workers has entered the school and cultural institutions to play a leading role. Mao Zedong’s above instructions were issued in this context.

Under the special political situation at that time, Chinese stamps directly assumed the function of political propaganda, and thus had a strong and strong political color. This stamp exemplifies the above characteristics in terms of the content of the picture and the design of the design.
