THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
Transcript of THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
WHY DID THEY REVOLT?
HOW DID THEY ORGANIZE?
Many people had been wanting a revolution for a very long time (although it was not actually planned out), and it was when leaders like Lenin, Stalin and the Bolsheviks(which others found out about through newspapers and other printed writings) that the revolution really began. The revolution would not have happened if it wasn't for Lenin, who appointed Stalin to serve and be the first leader of Bolsheviks. Because of them, the revolution began in a series in 1905.
(The first leader of the Soviet Union)
Tsar Nicholas II
(Last emperor of Russia)
HOW WAS THE GOVERNMENT THE SAME OR DIFFERENT FOLLOWING THE REVOLUTION?
The Bolsheviks revolted. They were the poor working class who were a part of the Orthodox church. They hated their government and what it was doing. The people worked together as a whole, but later, other people joined in and help.
HOW DID THE PEOPLE OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT?
Most of the people who wanted to revolt were already involved in the government. Because of this it was much easier to get the revolution started and to establish a different government. They used peaceful acts and protests as well as strikes to get what they wanted, thus sparing lives. They did not assassinate any leaders. They did get military from Germany and engaged in acts of warfare though.
The government and prime minister of Russia believed that anything could be solved by negotiation. On October 23, they took action and closed down Bolsheviks newspapers and had government buildings guarded the very next day.
The Russian Revolution slowed the Russian common people from creating change like a steam engine stuck in the mud.
HOW DID THE GOVERNMENT RESPOND?
The Last Tsar: The Life and Death of Nicholas II by Edvard Radzinsky
The Russians revolted for the same reasons that the American and French revolted. The Russians were starving, poor, and extremely oppressed. The Russian people strongly disliked Tsar Nicholas II and were overall tired of the feudal dictatorship.
For example, they were unhappy about the:
Not getting the help they needed
Poor working conditions
Mismanagement of the war
They felt that a revolution was the only way to make a change because they knew that they would not be listened to, especially since they were poor.
BY ALEXIS, AUBREY,&CASSIE
The Russians abandoned the democratic process and declared themselves as representatives of dictatorship of the proletariat(working class) because the people wanted to have more power for the lower classes. After that, the Russian Civil War resulted and a bit after, the Soviet Union was established.
