Full Description

“Without movement there is no life...We should use our energy to the fullest.” (活着就要斗争... 能量也要发挥干净) – Ai Qing (艾青)

“Towards the sun” That’s what my name, Xiang Yang (向阳), means. And you can have one too, a bright future that is. Now, under the leadership of Chairman Mao (毛主席), China is no longer weighed down by ancient dynasties and is changing for the good. It doesn't matter if you are a farmer, worker, tradesman or Zhiqing (知青), prosperity is possible. I myself came from Shanghai (上海) and moved to the countryside in Guizhou (贵州) to serve our party. To fight for a communist utopia where futures are bright. Be proud of our country and take part in the opportunities and prosperity it offers. Like the wise poet, Ai Qing (艾青), says we must keep moving and use abilities and energy to the fullest extent! And when you see the posters painted by Shen Jiawei (沈嘉蔚) or Luo Zhongli (罗中立) let them inspire you with the brilliant red messages of patriotism and passion. To belong among these fellow party members is an honor and a privilege. Long Live the Great, Glorious, and Correct Communist Party!
