The Second Congress of the Baltic 1 the s.nlois o( which are an intensely revolut onary force and u with the Bclsheviki. was in sesrion at the time, and decided to dr Petrograd "as the centre of the revolutionary forces." An appeal was adopted, which will become • classic of revolutionary literature: TO THE OPPRESSED IN ALL COUNTRIES! Comrades: In the fatal hour in which the signals of war and of drath ring in our ears, we repeat and emphasue our appeal to you. We send you our greetings and our last testament. Attacked by the powerful Cerman fleet, our warships are doomed in an unequal struggle. Not one ship will refuse to fight, not one sailor will desert his ship. Our much-abused fleet will do its duty—toward the great Revolution. We consider it our duty to defend Petrograd We will fulfill our ielf- imposed obligation. Not because of the request of a pitiful Russian Bonaparte (KeTenskv) who retains power simply because of the unlimited patience of the Russian Revolution. Nor because of the treates made by our government with the Allies, treaties intended to smother the Russian Revolution. We follow the call of our revolutionary sentiments. We go into death with the name of the great Revolution in our hearts and on our unfaltering lips. The Russian fleet has always stood in the front lines of the Revolution. The names of its sailors are written in the book of the history of the .truggle against the Ciarism. In the earliest days of the Revolution the sailors marched in the front ranks, our ultimate aim being deliverance from all misery. And this life and death struggle with our own oppressors gives us the right to appeal to you. proletarians of all countries, with a strong voice, with the voice of those who look into the eyes of death in the revolt against the exploiters. Break the chains, you who are oppressed! Rise in revolt! We have nothing to lose but our chatns' We believe in the victory of the Revolution, we are full of this belief. We know that our comrades in the Revolution will fulfill their duty on the barricades to the bitter end. We know that decisive moments are coming. A gigantic struggle will set the world afire. On the horizon the fires of the revolt of all oppressed peoples are already glowing and taking definite shape. At the moment that the waters of the Baltic will become red with the blood of our comrades, will close forever over their bodies, at this moment we call upon you. Already in the clutch of death, we send our warm greetings and appeal to you: Proletarians of the world, all, unite' Rise in revolt, you who are oppressed. All hail, the International Revolution) Long live Socialism! rnovemlaTW Issued by the SOCIALIST PUBLICATION SOCIETY, 431 Pulaski Street, Brooklyn, N. Y. f (Publisher of "The Class Struggle")
