Titled "Success and bright road of Wu Qi", The May 7 road is referring to Mao Zedong's 7 May Directive, which was released on 7 May 1966. As explained in Dr. Stefan Landsberger’s site, located at http://www.iisg.nl/~landsberger/m7.html, “In this directive, Mao suggested setting up farms, later called cadre schools, where cadres and intellectuals, "sent down" from the cities, would perform manual labor and undergo ideological reeducation.” During the Cultural Revolution, "transferring cadres to lower levels" became a favored method to remove unyielding cadres and intellectuals from the cities. The Central Committee and the State Council built 106 7 May cadres schools, scattered over eighteen provinces. Over 100,000 officials from the central government, including Deng Xiaoping, and 30,000 family members were sent there. Lower-level government offices set up tens of thousands more cadre schools, where an unknown number of middle- and lower-ranking cadres was sent for reeducation.” Wood block print, 30” x 21”.
