Background: Over ten thousand people in Peking representing all walks of life attended a big rally on Jan. 26th. to give a rousing welcome to the Indonesian delegation sent specially by President Sukarno. The delegation is led by Dr. Subandrio First Deputy Prime Minister of Indonesia.
Premier Chou En-lai attended the rally.
The rally is presided over by the Mayor of Peking, Peng Chen, Vice Premier Chen Yi declares: the U.S. imperialist-manipulated United Nations has been increasingly reduced to a tool of the decadent forces of the world. It must correct its mistakes, and it must be thoroughly reorganised. Indonesia's withdrawal from the United Nations is the first step in promoting such reorganisation. Consideration may also be given to the setting up of another United nations, a revolutionary one, so that rival dramas may be staged in competition with the existing, U.S. -manipulated United Nations for people to make the comparison. The Chinese Vice Premier goes on to say: Should the British and U.S. imperialists dare to impose a war on the Indonesian people, the Chinese people will definitely not sit idly by. Final victory will certainly belong to the great Indonesian people:
In his speech, the First Deputy Prime Minister of Indonesia, Dr. Subandrio, praised the militant friendship between the Chinese and Indonesian peoples and sternly condemned the British and US imperialists for running roughshod everywhere in the world. Let us continue our struggle against colonialism and imperialism, he declares, strengthen our ranks, strengthen the ranks of the world's progressive and revolutionary forces and strengthen the ranks of the world's forces against imperialism so that we may truly bury the era of imperialism.
