The fifth part in a PBS piece published in 2001 by Andrew J. Nathan and Perry Link:

Editorial denounces students

"The Necessity for a Clear Stand Against Turmoil,"
(read the full translation) appears in the state-run newspaper, the People's Daily. This editorial closely follows the opinions expressed by Deng at the meeting the day before. "This is a well-planned plot … to confuse the people and throw the country into turmoil," it reads. "… Its real aim is to reject the Chinese Communist Party and the socialist system at the most fundamental level."
