Propaganda is circulating on Chinese social media platforms Weibo and WeChat. It is reinforced by articles addressed to ‘splittists’ – a term believed to refer to those in favour of separating areas the Asian superpower asserts authority over.
The messages serve as a hair-raising insight into Beijing’s well-known stance on Taiwan, over which it claims sovereignty.
These were published the information arm of the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) 80th Group Army.
A propaganda poster – depicting military rockets being fired beside the words “prepare for war” – has been produced by the Political Work Department.
The content was shared on Wednesday, June 9.
According to the articles, troops in the 80th Group Army, which is deployed in China’s Shandong province, vowed to “obey all commands” and “fear no challenges.”
The soldiers also promised to “fight for dignity without fear of death,” according to the campaign material.
The propaganda drive also included a music video featuring videos of tanks, soldiers and rocket explosions.
The video was titled “Want to be a splittist? Listen here!”.
