Transcript " 4. North-West or Leningrad Organisation, conducted by Finn-Yenotayevsky." (Statement made 30th November, 1930.) Contact with the workers was a very different matter. Here the statements of almost all the defendants coincide. Volkov declares : " .... So far as I am aware, the ' All-Union Bureau ' did not carry out any mass work. The chief work was carried on among the former Menshevist cadres present for the most part in various institutions. As a rule there are no old Mensheviks in the works and factories, and at the period in question the feeling among the workers was not calculated to awaken any hopes of favourable results of work among them or of their participation in the organisation and according sympathy to the Menshevist movement." (Statement made 20th February, 1931.) Sokolovsky confirms this statement : " The mass work of the ' All-Union Bureau ' was thus infinitesimal, or rather entirely lacking. There was no attempt to organise and lead any such work, due doubtless on the one hand to the social basis upon which the new Menshevism was built up, and on the other to the complete absorption in disorganisation work, pressing all other militant methods into the background. When the disorganisation work was combined with intervention, the * All-Union Bureau ' was less able than ever to devote attention to mass work, for it was well aware that an open advocacy of intervention was not calculated to create an atmosphere favourable for Menshevism, especially among the workers. . . ." (Statement made 22nd February, 1931.) Attempts were, however, made at agitation and propaganda by means of the circulation of literature. Some of this was of foreign origin and some was prepared in the Soviet Union by the " All-Union Bureau." This literature was of two kinds, documents containing directives, and agitation material. Sher's statement of 27th January, 1931, contains the following on this subject : " So far as I can remember, the material issued by the ' All-Union Bureau ' consisted of the folowing : " In 1928 : " 1. Appeal ' to the members of the organisation of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (Mensheviks), laying down the tasks of the organisation and the perspectives of the struggle in view of the liquidation of N.E.P.' If I am not mistaken, this appeal was duplicated. I received a copy from A. L. Sokolovsky. 39
