High-school Red Guards were often extremely well organised, publishing newspapers and forming city-wide alliances. In Guangxi the Cultural Revolution degenerated into a local civil war between the Guangxi Union and the April 22nd Command (4.22). Students at the No.1 High School in the regional capital, Nanning, sided with the Guangxi Union, which by the end of summer 1968 had emerged victorious. Their badge, at right, carries the obverse inscription, "Revolutionary Committees are Good".
