Gang Of Four


Gang Of Four
   Consisting of Jiang Qing, Zhang Chunqiao, Wang Hongwen and Yao Wenhuan, the Gang of Four was a group of Chinese communist leaders who were arrested in 1976 accused of trying to seize power after Mao Zedong’s death. They were convicted of a number of crimes against the state. All members of the Politiburo, the Gang of Four were hard-line radicals and leading proponents of the Cultural Revolution. Jiang, who led the group, was Mao’s wife and had had great power and influence in China while Mao was alive. The arrest and conviction of the Gang of Four was seen as a victory for more moderate communists in the country.
