Abstract

Article we present, aims to present an aspect of local history of Elbasan region or neighborhood, in the '20s-30s of the
twentieth century, peasant struggle for land, as one of the main directions of social conflict in this period, not only in the prefecture, but
nationwide. This war not only aimed at resolving the land ownership right, but simultaneously improving the economic status of
peasants, through easing the tax burden. To realize these goals in such a motion also included rural layers of Elbasan Prefecture, whose
war took more the character of an economic war, given the difficult situation that characterize this layer and poor rural schools, especially
the remote areas and state fiscal policy seriously. Through archival sources, in this article we try to analyze the reasons that prompted
such a move, the development of its format, the connection with labor movements and their consequences in this region and beyond.
