Draft Decision for the CPC[1]

The Commissariat for Labour is authorised to take extraordinary measures in order, by agreement with the trade unions and under the indisputable control of the Commissariat for Food, to mobilise the greatest possible number of public-spirited, organised and class-conscious workers to help the rural poor in their struggle against the rich kulaks and to mercilessly suppress profiteering in grain and attempts to infringe the grain monopoly.

  1. This draft decision was adopted by the CPC on May 9, 1918, during the discussion of a decree granting extraordinary powers to the People’s Commissariat for Food.
