Transcript According to the evidence of Sher, three plenary sessions- of the All-Union Bureau took place in all : in 1928, in 1929- and the last in 1930. The first plenary session took place in the spring of 1928, probably in March or April. The session took place in the home of Stern. The following points were on the agenda : 1. The question of the attitude of the All-Union Bureau to the Five Year Plan (Gromann delivered a speech on this point); 2. The question of the attitude of the All-Union Bureau to the other counter-revolutionary organisations at work in the Soviet Union (Gromann delivered the main speech on this point, and was followed by Sher, who dealt with the question of the peasant movement against the Soviet power); 3. The question of the disorganising work (as the Mensheviks politely termed their sabotage activities). Resolutions of a practical nature were worked out and adopted on all these points. For instance, on the first point on the agenda a resolution was adopted which began with a general description of the Five Year Plan as an extremely important means of consolidating the Soviet power. This resolution recommended the Mensheviks to hinder as far as possible during the preparatory discussions of the problem the beginning of the practical work, and further, " to stress all the difficulties attached to the carrying out of the plan and not to hesitate at making a tendencious choice of the facts in question, and at presenting these facts in a tendencious light. (Statement of Sher on February 19th, 1931.) The resolution adopted on the second point recommended the more distant organisations to follow carefully the development of the peasant movement in the provinces and to establish connections with the representatives of the " Party of the Working Peasants." The resolution adopted on the third point of the agenda was of a similar nature. The plenary session gave general instructions for the work of disorganisation and empowered the leading committee of the All-Union Bureau to make a beginning with the work of sabotage. The second plenary session took place in the autumn of 1929, probably in September. This session was held in the home of Gromann. Three questions were dealt with at this session : 1. The collective agricultural movement and its prospects; 2, the internal differences of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and the question of exploiting the Right-wing deviation in the interests of the R.S.D.L.P.; and 3, the attitude of the R.S.D.L.P. on the question of foreign intervention. Sher delivered a speech on the first point, whilst Gromann dealt with the third point. Sher does not state who delivered
