BAISE is a pleasant, small city set 220km northwest of Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Historically, Baise's fame dates back to 1929: no Chinese government could then seriously lay claim to this remote region, but Deng Xiaoping found thousands of willing converts amongst Baise's Zhuang minority population when he arrived in September with a CCP mandate to spread the Communist message, and on December 11 he declared the formation of the You Jiang Soviet here. Deng Xiaoping raised an army in Baise for the Communists and against the Nationalists. The Baise uprising was not overly successful. Over-ambitious attempts to raise an army and secure the province against the Nationalists, however, saw the movement falter rapidly, though survivors from this uprising eventually managed to join up with Mao's Jiangxi Soviet during the Long March in 1934. The Baise Uprising paved the way for establishing the Zuojiang and Youjiang revolutionary bases.
