The 'Chinese Khrushchev', who is being wiped out at the bottom left, is Liu Shaoqi. Together with Deng Xiaoping he introduces some privatizations in agriculture. Mao wages a severe campaign against them. Eventually, Liu and Deng are thrown out of the party and arrested. Liu dies soon afterwards, being denied medical aid in confinement; Deng will return to high functions in 1973. The agressive group in the poster consists of a female Red Guard, a worker with brush and Mao's collected writings, a farmer and a soldier.
