V.I Lenin

Written on 26 or 27 of October 1917, stating the eight key regulations on workers control following the October Revolution.

"Long live the revolution of workers, soldiers and peasants!"

"The government is tottering. It must be given the death blow at all costs. To delay action is fatal."

"Our Party stands solidly and firmly, as one man, in defence of Soviet power, in defence of the interests of all the working people, and first and foremost of the workers and poor peasants." From the Central Committee of the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party (Bolsheviks)

"The Council of People’s Commissars calls upon the peasants to take all power into their own hands in their respective localities"

"To doubt now that the majority of the people are following and will follow the Bolsheviks is shameful vacillation and in practice is the abandoning of all the principles of proletarian revolutionism, the complete renunciation of Bolshevism."

"The success of both the Russian and the world revolution depends on two or three days' fighting."
