To the Workers of Petrograd! (1917)

In this July 5, 1917 appeal, the All-Russian Executive Committee of the Soviet of Workers and Soldiers' Deputies pleads with the workers and soldiers of Petrograd to stay at their jobs. Only the All Russian or Petrograd Executive Committees has the authority to call a strike or demonstration. Implied, but not stated, in this appeal is that the Bolshevik Party does not have the authority to call strikes or demonstrations.
