DAZIBAO Big Character Poster (大字报), 1966-1976

Historical note

The big character poster titled, "Some Complaints about the Leaders of the Ministry," was created by the staff of the Thirteenth Bureau under the Chinese Ministry of Public Security during China's Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). The Thirteenth Bureau was in charge of Qincheng Prison, China's maximum-security political prison, that incarcerated previously influential political figures. During the Cultural Revolution, there was vehement factional fighting in the Thirteenth Bureau.

Scope and Contents

The series is composed of a four-part poster in which the staff of the Thirteenth Bureau, under Chinese Ministry of Public Security, expressed their discontent with their leaders, criticizing them as being arbitrary and suppressing democracy. Sun Pengfei, the vice director of the Bureau, was mentioned in the poster as being inefficient in promoting the Cultural Revolution within the Bureau. In addition, the authors considered the leaders of the Ministry of Public Security to be failures in listening to the voices of the ordinary staff in the Thirteenth Bureau and thus advocated that leaders to visit the Bureau more often. In the last section of the poster, the signatures of the 33 staff members of the Thirteenth Bureau are evident.
