The Putilov Factory went on strike. Steel automated equipment and machine tools. The gates opened and the workers poured out into the street.

“Down with the Tsar! Down with the war!”

The police tried to stop the Putilov factory workers, but couldn't.

Throngs of working men and women were drawn in from all corners of the city.
