The teachings of Mao, December 17

17 Dec 2013

In a remote part of central China, the day starts at the Democracy Elementary and Middle School with a pre-dawn jog, some revolutionary songs and then an activity long since forgotten at other schools: reciting quotations from Mao Zedong's famed 'Little Red Book'. The 120th anniversary of Mao's birth is on December 26, 2013. All photos from Carlos Barria, Reuters.
