    THE OFFICIAL COMMENTARY SUPPLIED WITH THIS FILM FROM PEKING TELEVISION SAYS:



    TRANSCRIPT: "EXTRAS CARRIED BY THE PEOPLE'S DAILY APPEARED IN PEKING ON THE EVENING OF FEBRUARY 8TH FEATURING THE STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE GOVERNMENT OF THE VIETNAM DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC ON THE BOMBING AND STRAFING OF NORTH VIETNAM BY U.S. AIRCRAFT. THE NEWS OF U.S. ARMED AGGRESSION IN NORTH VIETNAM AND THE EXPANSION OF THE WAR IN SOUTH VIETNAM AROUSED THE IMMENSE INDIGNATION OF CHINA'S 650 MILLION PEOPLE.



    "THE EVENING SAW HALF A MILLION PEOPLE OUT IN THE STREETS TO VOICE THEIR STRONG PROTEST AGAINST THE PIRATICAL ACTION OF U.S. IMPERIALISM AGAINST THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM. THEY ALSO WARMLY ACCLAIMED THE BRILLIANT VICTORIES SCORED BY THE PEOPLE OF VIETNAM IN HITTING BACK THE U.S. AGGRESSION.



    "LETTERS PLEDGING SUPPORT ARRIVED AT THE VIETNAMESE EMBASSY UNTIL VERY LATE IN THE NIGHT. THE CHINESE PEOPLE WILL FOREVER STAND BY THE PEOPLE OF VIETNAM AND CARRY ON THE STRUGGLE AGAINST U.S. IMPERIALISM TO THE END. THE DEMONSTRATIONS CONTINUED UNTIL LATE IN THE NIGHT.



    "ON FEBRUARY 9TH, ONE MILLION PEOPLE, INCLUDING WORKERS, PEASANTS, CIVIL SERVANTS, STUDENTS, MILITIAMEN AND OTHER SECTIONS OF THE CITY'S POPULATION TURNED OUT FOR THE DEMONSTRATION. THE MAMMOTH PARADE DEMONSTRATED THAT CHINA IS WELL PREPARED FOR ALL EVENTUALITIES AND THAT THE CHINESE PEOPLE ARE FOUR SQUARE BEHIND THEIR VIETNAMESE BROTHERS. THUNDEROUS ROARS OF 'DEFEAT TO THE U.S. AGGRESSORS' AND 'VICTORY TO THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE' FILLED THE STREETS. SKITS (PLAYLETS) WERE PERFORMED IN TIENANMEN SQUARE BY PEKING ARTISTS EXPOSING THE UGLY FEATURES OF THE U.S. AGGRESSORS. OTHER PERFORMANCES HAILED THE IMPORTANT VICTORIES SCORED BY THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE IN DEALING COUNTER-BLOWS AGAINST U.S. IMPERIALIST AGGRESSION.



    "AS THE DEMONSTRATORS FILED PAST THE VIETNAMESE EMBASSY, LETTERS, PLEDGING SOLIDARITY WERE HANDED TO THE VIETNAMESE CHARGE D'AFFAIRES AD INTERIM HOANG BAC. THE DEMONSTRATORS AFFIRM THAT CHINA WILL TAKE EVERY POSSIBLE ACTION TO SUPPORT AND ASSIST THE PEOPLE OF VIETNAM.



    "AMONG THE MULTITUDE OF DEMONSTRATORS WERE STUDENTS FROM VIETNAM, INDONESIA, LAOS, CAMBODIA, ALGERIA, CUBA AND OTHER COUNTRIES NOW STUDYING IN PEKING."
