1978_4022 | China 1978 |1978 China, Guangdong, Guangzhou. Hua Guofeng authorised tourist visas… Because France recognised People's Republic of China in 1964, as a frenchman, I got quite quickly a visa from the China Travel Agency in Hong Kong in the early 1978…  "On 6 October 1976, shortly after the death of Mao, Hua removed the Gang of Four from political power by arranging for their arrests in Beijing. Afterwards he took on the titles of party chairman and Chairman of the Central Military Commission. Hua is thus far the only leader to have simultaneously held the offices of party leader, premier and CMC chairman... Hua attempted moderate reforms and reversing some of the excesses of Cultural Revolution-era policies. However, because of his insistence on continuing the Maoist line, he faced resistance in the upper echelons of the party. In December 1978, a group of party veterans led by Deng Xiaoping, a pragmatic reformer, forced Hua from power but allowed him to retain some titles. Hua gradually faded into political obscurity, but continued to insist on the correctness of Maoist principles." Wikipedia: photo by Pierre Wayser, sometime in 1978
