League of Peasants
The minutes of peasant league meetings were filled with discussions about the logistics
of agricultural productiontarget dates, work schedules, mobilization numbers, crop
varieties, and productivity rates which was tedious on paper but a source of social
significance for rural collective life, sustaining the rural economy as a whole. The
minutes show increasing levels of coordination among villages as large-scale irrigation
and land reclamation projects were undertaken that required the cooperation of several
villages.
Most peasant league meetings were entirely devoted to agricultural planning, which
was in their collective interest and what they knew best. Political discussions were rare
as far as records show, no doubt due to limited political education in the early years. In
fact, the party had to provide specific instructions, directing party members in the
peasant league to include political disussios durig eetigs  epressig hatred of
