Lin Piao, Chou En-lai, T’ao Chu, [Ch’en] Po-ta, [Wang] Jen-chung, and Chiang Ch’ing:

I have read the attached document. The incidents in Tsing-tao, Ch’angsha, and Sian are similar. They are caused by the opposition of organized workers and peasants against students and are all wrong. They must not be allowed to continue. Try to issue a directive from the Centre to stop them and then publish editorials to tell the workers and peasants to cease interfering with student movements. Nothing like this has happened in Peking, except that the People’s Congress drafted 600 peasants into the city to protect Kuo Ch’iu-ying. Pass the experience of Peking on to other places.

I think the views of T’an Ch’i-lung and the vice-mayor [of Tsingtao?] are correct.
