Union of Toiling Peasants

Union of Toiling Peasants

The Union of Toiling Peasants ( _ru. Союза трудового крестьянства) was a counter-revolutionary political organization that emerged out of the Tambov Rebellion in 1920, in the midst of the Russian Civil War. The organization was led by the former Social-Revolutionary politician Alexander Antonov. [http://www.uea.ac.uk/his/webcours/russia/documents/trud-krestyane.shtml] The self-professed goal of the organization was the 'overthrow of the government of Communist-Bolsheviks'. [Kowalski, Ronald I. The Russian Revolution: 1917-1921. Routledge sources in history. London: Routledge, 1997. p. 232]
