Peng Pai, originally a school teacher who lost his job due to leading his students on the May Day demonstration in 1921, joined the CCP and went back to the countryside where he organized the Haifeng Peasant Association.It was the Guangdong military leader Chen Jiongming who time and again sponsored Peng Pai, first with money to send Peng Pai to Japan for studies, then with the appointment as a county education official, and then with support for Peng Pai's communist activities in organizing the peasant associations that saw Peng Pai killing innumerable landlords and wealthy peasants in the coastal Haifeng and Lufeng area.Li Chenghu was arrested and tortured to death in prison on Jan 24th of 1922. Beginning from late 1924, Mao Tse-tung purported delved himself into the peasants movement.The "" magazine and Shanghai newspapers had reports on this incident. Mao Tse-tung returned to his home-village, Shaoshan in Feb 1925, established a night school for peasants, organized peasant association, and set up the CCP Shaoshan Branch.Sadly, patriotic and hot-blooded youth became the victims of ideological struggles.On the matter of peasants, Mao Tse-tung (Mao Tse-tung) was not the only nor the first person who had heralded the peasants' movement.Demands (for) reduction of land rent passed over almost immediately to demand for its total abolition. After communist leader Qu Qiubai seduced his daughter-in-law in 1924, Shen took another turn by joining the West Hill faction and attended the senior KMT leaders for a meeting in front of Sun Yat-sen's altar in Peking.
In July, Wang Jingwei's Wuhan Government (i.e., the KMT leftists) announced the separation of the KMT and the CCP under the pressure of the Nanking's government as well as its internal opposition to the CCP's bloody land revolution in the Hunan-Hubei Provinces.
Chen Yuansen stated that Mao Tse-tung, often depicted with an traditional Chinese oil-paper umbrella in the early portraits, might have used the umbrella as a secret society signal in his tour of the countryside where he organized peasants into over twenty so-called 'peasant associations', a form of organization that was built upon the experiences of secret societies.
Mao Tse-tung was said to have launched the movement of "stopping the landlords from exporting of the grains and forcing the landlords into disposal of the grains to the local peasants at the discounted price".
Mao Tse-tung, directly responsible for the rascal movement in Hunan Province in 1927, would be the red-handed culprit in the Purge of the Anti-Bolshevik League during 1930-1931, the Purge of the Trotskyites during 1937-1941, and The Rectification Movement during 1942-1945.
Simply said, the CCP never stopped its bloody terror campaigns since inception in history, and its claws could be seen in the most recent crackdown on the Falungong practitioners.
