This ironclad belief rendered Nicholas unwilling to allow the progressive reforms that might have alleviated the suffering of the Russian people. Students, white-collar workers, and teachers joined the workers in the streets and at public meetings. As a result, they formally abandoned the democratic process in January and declared themselves the representatives of a dictatorship of the proletariat.

      This day is called Bloody Sunday. By the end ofonly five months into the war, Russia in revolution bookRussian men had lost their lives and nearly 1, were injured. What could Kerensky have been thinking? Lenin used all his powers of persuasion to convince the others that it was time for an armed insurrection. Not able to get through, Lenin jumped on top of a car and gave a speech. During his reign, the Russian people experienced terrible poverty and upheaval, marked by the Bloody Sunday massacre in when unarmed protesters demanding social reforms were shot down by the army near Nicholas' palace.

An ally in the left fraction of the Revolutionary-Socialist Partywith huge support among the peasants who opposed Russia's participation in the war, supported the slogan 'All power to the Soviets'.
