Summary of Interview 090765B with Galdan
Privatization was conducted unfairly from the beginning and the people who privatized the winter and the spring camping places and the wells haven’t much made use of them but they just dismantled them and took them away.
At the beginning of the democratic process the herders feared a coup d’etat and grave disorder, a division of the nation into two and fighting between each other but democracy won peacefully.
In the socialist period many tests had to be overcome in order to join the party. If a herder became a party member, his responsibilities and commitments grew even more but not the salary or wages.
