Calan Gaeaf...Great October Revolution time for a break.

What a week- Halloween, Calan Gaeaf,


November 5th



and the Anniversary of the Great October Revolution...



Time to take a break.

I was going to post this on November 7th- but i'll be away, so here is the proclamation of the Military Revolutionary Committee of the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies, made at 10:00, October 25th 1917 (The Gregorian calendar was implemented in Russia on 14th February 1918- they missed out 1st -13th to 'catch up'):



(From the Military Revolutionary Committee of the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies
To Citizens of Russia
The Provisional Government is deposed. The state power is transferred into the hands of the Military Revolutionary Committee, an organ of the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies, which heads the Petrograd proletariat and garrison.
The cause for which the people has been struggling — immediate call for democratic peace, liquidation of ownership of land by landed nobility, workers' control over the industry, creation of the Soviet government — is ensured.
Long live the revolution of workers, soldiers and peasants!
Military Revolutionary Committee of the Petrograd Soviet of Workers' and Soldiers' Deputies
October 25, 1917, 10 a.m.)
