We are the new government which is run by the Petrogad Soviet and the Provisional Government
No more Tsarist Autocracy!
All Power to The Soviets!
PEACE! BREAD! LAND!
The year was 1914 and Russia was at war with Germany. The working Class and the peasants made up the Russian Army, but they were not well equipped or trained for the war. The year is now 1917 millions of Russians have been either killed or wounded. The Russian People are angry at Czar Nicholas II for getting Russia into war and for having food shortages.
The Petrogad Soviet was the City Council for workers and soldiers. The soldiers elected people to represent their demands. Tsar abdicated bringing an end to the Tsarist Autocracy and a new government took over. the new government was run by two political parties: the Petrogad Soviet and the Provisional Government.
The Provisional Government decided to stay in the war and failed to give land to the peasants. Vladimir Lenin were a faction of the marxixt Russian social democratic labour party and became the communist Party of the Soviet Union. His slogan would appeal to the people and the Petrogad Soviet- Peace, Bread and Land. He also said "All Power to the Soviets!"
