    Within the Comunidad...

    Within the Comunidad Campesina, comuneros are organized in co-operatives and UCP (Unidades Comunales de Produccion). While the co-operatives had already received their lands since the initial stages of the irrigation programme, the UCP were commonly entitled to remoter areas, far from the secondary distributing channels. They had to find funds and organise their own working power to dig the channels in the cheapest way. Hundreds of farmers organised themselves in working shifts to ensure the manual work required for the extension of the water distribution system. the scarce funds were devoted to machine landfilling of deeper areas, buying the pumps, protecting with cement the key nodes of the distributing network. This is a case in which the
    organisational skills of the Comunidad and its leaders are peculiarly evident.
