Titel: The Third Revolution?
Sub titel: Peasant and worker resistance to the Bolshevik government
The Makhnovist movement of the Ukraine is the best known of the revolutionary oppositions to the Bolshevik regime. But it was not the only radical challenge the Bolsheviks faced from below. Numerous peasants revolts occurred in the years 1920-22, aiming not to restore the old regime but calling for a third revolution to defend themselves from the new one. Nick Heath here examines their extent, causes and limitations. It contains information on a series of libertarian uprisings throughout Russia. Among others you find interesting details on peasant and worker resistance to the Bolshevik government; The West Siberian uprising (1921-1922); The Sapozhkov Uprising and the Army of Truth (1920); The Fomin mutiny on the Don, 1920-1922; The Maslakov mutiny and the Makhnovists on the Don (1921); Brova, Mikhail or Brava aka Batko Brova (?-1921); The Kolesnikov Uprising; Workers Revolts against the Bolshevik regime; Anatoli Nikolaevich Lamanov 1889-1921. These articles were originally posted in the Libcom.org library.
