Storyboard Text

  • Papa, I'm starving. 
  • We will not stand this any longer. We deserve better!
  • This is a disgrace! Find a way to fix this mess!!!
  • During the late 1800s peasants faced many diffulties. Most who worked on farms were too poor to buy it, and even the people who owned the land could barely afford to feed their own families. 
  • SHUT IT DOWN NOW! YES SIR!
  • The people wanted reform, and so they decided to take matters into their own hands. And on Sunday, January 22, in 1905, a March occurred in St. Petersburg. 
  • OH NO... PLEASE
  • Just a few months before, Russia had brutally lost to Japan in the Russo-Japanese War. They became the first European Country loose to an Asian nation. This showed that Russia severely lacked industrialization. 
  • FROM THIS DAY ON WE WILL NOT BE PUSHED AROUND. THERE NEEDS TO BE CHANGE
  • Although the Czars wanted to import western industrialization, with that also came the ideas of the French Revolution. The current Czar, Nicholas II, used harsh tactics to suppress reform. 
  • What was supposed to be a peaceful march turned into a tragedy when the soldiers sent by Nicholas II opened fire into the crowd. 
  • After this event, which is now known today as Bloody Sunday, strikes and revolts  exploded across Russia.
