On the eve of former Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong's birthday (December 25), large crowds of his admirers, many young, converged at the Mao Zedong Statue Square in Shaoshan to mark the occasion. Celebratory demonstrations filled the air as they hoisted red flags, brandished portraits of Mao, unfurled banners wishing "Happy Birthday to Grandpa Mao," and chanted slogans like "Long live Chairman Mao," "We want the true Mao Zedong Thought," and "Long live the dictatorship of the proletariat." The footage in this clip was posted to various X (formerly Twitter) accounts on December 25 and 26, 2023.

Demonstrators: "Long Live Chairman Mao! Long Live Chairman Mao!


"We want socialism, not capitalism! We must take the road of socialism and reject the restoration of capitalism! We want public ownership by the people, not a big bureaucratic ownership system! We want a true public ownership, not private ownership under the banner of Marxism-Leninism! We want the true Mao Zedong Thought!


"Long live Mao Zedong Thought! Defend against imperialism and fight against revisionism, struggle against the capitalists and criticize revisionism! Down with revisionism! Down with bureaucratic capitalism! Never forget class struggle! Class struggle is effectively when firmly grasped! Down with bureaucratic capitalism! Down with revisionism! Long live Mao Zedong Thought!"
