An excellent and very rare edition of a vanished revolutionary newspaper. This edition is dedicated to the battle against the counter revolution.
Красный Питер в опасности!
Англо-французские разбойники. фино-эстонские мясники атакуют его.
Но российские пролетарии не отдадут палачам народа красной столицы мировой революции.
Питер останется центром мирового комунизма. Питер победит смертельных врагов революции!
Red Peter* in danger!
English and French robbers, Finnish and Estonian butchers attack.
But Russian proletarians will not give up red capital city of world revolution to the executioners of the people
Peter will remain the world centre of communism. Peter will win over the murderous enemies of revolution!
Long live the Petrograd Commune.
Long live the peaceful uprising of the proletariat.
*Peter is the ‘nickname’ of St. Petersburg (Petrograd) in Russian.
