"NEW ZEALAND HAILS TRIUMPH OF CHINA'S CULTURAL REVOLUTION" WELLINGTON -- The political committee of the Communist Party of New Zealand, in a statement in the "People's Voice" today, warmly acclaims the great proletarian cultural revolution in China and the great victory of the enlarged Twelfth Plenary Session of the Eighth Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.

The statement says, "An intense struggle is being waged between two powerful forces in the international arena. One of these forces represents the toiling and oppressed people of the world. The other represents the exploiters and oppressors."

It continues, "At the head of the alliance of all the exploited classes and nations stands revolutionary China, under the leadership of the Lenin of our time, Chairman Mao Tse-tung. At the head of the other alliance of exploiters and traitors to socialism stand the imperialist leaders and Soviet revisionist leaders.

"The struggle between the two totally opposed forces is going on in all countries of the world, including New Zealand. Every victory for the forces of revolutionary socialism and national liberation is a victory for the working class and exploited of New Zealand against the people's enemies.

"For this reason, the political committee applauds the triumph of the proletarian cultural revolution in China, which has kept China firmly on the path of evolutionary socialism against all attempts from within and without to turn China back to capitalism ." the statement emphasizes.

It points out that the schemes of China's arch revisionist Liu Shao-chi to restore capitalism have been thoroughly smashed by the revolutionary workers and peasants of China under the wise leadership of Chairman Mao Tse-tung and the people of China. This is a victory of the working people of all countries.
