Time: Wednesday Mar 25, 1959

Details: At a secret meeting in the Jinjiang Hotel in Shanghai dated March 25, 1959, Mao specifically ordered the party to procure up to one third of all the grain, much more than had ever been the case.

It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill."
