"The Chinese people have stood up!"

These were the inspiring words with which Mao Zedong greeted the founding of the New China on October 1st 1949, having led the popular anti-feudal and anti-colonial independence struggle to its victorious conclusion.

This group is for all those who want China to remain standing, striving and striding towards a peaceful and prosperous socialist future. Thankfully, China has become strong, but her enemies do not sleep and our friendship is much needed and welcomed by the Chinese people, as can be seen from the response to our launch meeting.

Those with vested interests in colonial and feudal slavery were furious that the chinese people - so great an "asset" - should have the audacity to liberate themselves. Those powers - US, UK, EU and Japanese imperialists foremost among them - still have eyes on China; they have not forgotten the luxury such colonial possessions afforded them; they would happily, given the opportunity, see the Chinese people once more in chains.

That is why their propaganda machines work ceaselessly to defame and slander China, her people and government. There is no semblance of 'objectivity' in their coverage, no sincerity in their professed love for 'human rights' - a cursory knowledge of historical fact proves this.

What the capitalist's seek, in China as elsewhere, is domination; unbridled power to exploit the Chinese masses - which, contrary to the slanders of many 'left-wing' parties and commentators, they do not possess. To this end, they seek to prepare the ground to break China's sovereignty, territorial integrity and the rule of the Chinese people's greatest organisational weapon - the Communist Party of China.

Progressive working people the world over feel differently. We welcome and applaud the strides China is making to lift hundreds of millions of our fellow workers out of poverty and see that, not withstanding all difficulties involved in a project of such magnitude, the People's Republic of China remains a great force for peace and progress throughout the world.

Long live socialist China!
