The meetings used to be held in secret but now are held in the open. They, however, are not celebratory anymore. The animals used to sing "Beasts of England" but the pageantry has died away. Slowly Napoleon stops attending the meetings having Squealer do the work for him. At each meeting Squealer claims they are doing better even though the animals are tired and hungry. The propaganda and spin on things gets more intense with each meeting. Finally the animals sit in fear at meetings as Napoleon’s attack dogs sit at the ready.
