The Fourth National Congress, January 11-22, 1925, Shanghai. In attendance: 20 deputies representing 994 Party members.
The congress outlined the scope of the leadership of the proletariat over the democratic revolution and the issue of alliance with peasants; it formulated a plan for the mass movement and decided to set up and strengthen Party organizations nationwide. This laid the groundwork for the steady development of the revolution, theoretically, tactically and organizationally.
Thereafter, the workers' and peasants' movements developed quickly in south China, promoting success in the war against northern feudal warlords.
