This chapter describes how the peasant owners, tenant farmers, and sharecroppers fared during the collectivization movement that had shaken the small bourgeoisie discussed in the previous chapter. It also presents the views held by the CNT, UGT, and the Federación Anarquista Ibérica (FAI) on the virtues of collectivization. Rural collectivization in particular had become the foundation of the new regime of anarchist, or libertarian communism, as it was called, for the CNT-FAI members. Libertarian communism would be a regime without classes, based on labor unions and self-governing communes, that would be united into a nationwide confederation, and in which the means of production and distribution would be held in common.

Keywords:   collectivization movement, rural collectivization, CNT, FAI, libertarian communism, anarchists, agricultural production
