Previous National Congresses
Special> CPC Celebrates 90th Anniversary 1921-2011> Previous National Congresses

The Sixth National Congress

The Sixth National Congress, June 18-July 11, 1928, Moscow. In attendance: 84 deputies and 34 alternate deputies, representing over 40,000 Party members.

The congress criticized Right capitulationism and the Left putschist mistake of organizing insurrections blindly. The congress adopted the revolutionary programme of opposing imperialism and feudalism, conducting land reform and establishing the worker-peasant democratic dictatorship to push the revolution forward.

After the congress, the Communist Party and the Red Army under its leadership set up 15 revolutionary bases in a dozen provinces throughout China.

In 1934, because of Wang Ming's erroneous leadership, the Red Army suffered a defeat, failing to break Chiang Kai-shek's fifth encirclement campaign against the Central Revolutionary Base Area in southern Jiangxi and western Fujian. During the Long March necessitated by that defeat, the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee held an enlarged meeting in Zunyi, Guizhou Province, in January 1935. The meeting decided to reshuffle the leading organ of the Central Committee, putting an end to the rule of Wang Ming's Left adventurism and establishing a new leadership with Mao Zedong as its chief representative in the Party Central Committee.

The War of Resistance Against Japan broke out in 1937. The CPC Central Committee pursued the policy offorming an anti-Japanese national united front with the result that the Party and people's forces grew steadily in strength.
