Transcript (Translation of the two foregoing pages) To the German Soldiers! Soldiers, Brothers! On October 25th (old style) the workmen and soldiers of St. Petersburg overthrew the imperialistic government of Kerensky and placed the whole power into the hands of the Soviets of the Workmen's, Soldiers' and Peasants' Delegates. The new Government under the name of Council of the People's Commissaries was confirmed by the All-Russian Congress of Soviets of Workmen's and Soldiers' Delegates. The program, to the execution of which the Government has immediately proceeded, consists in a proposal of an immediate democratic peace, which has already been communicated to all the combatant nations and their Governments, in the transfer without indemnification of all the land to the peasants for their use and of the realization of a workmen's control over the production and industry. *The new Government of workmen and peasants has already accomplished all these tasks, partly or in full The Government has entrusted us with the chairmanship in the Council of the People's Commissaries and .the management of the foreign affairs of the state. Our Government, the provisional workmen and peasant government, addressed itself October 26th a. c, with peace proposals to the Governments and peoples of all the belligerent Powers insisting on a speedy suspension of hostilities on all the fronts and an immediate commencement of the peace negotiations for the conclusion of an equitable democratic peace without annexations or war indemnifications. We have taken all measures and we will in future not leave any unadopted, in order that all the belligerent Governments and peoples should be informed of the full context of our peace negotiations. In addition to the aforesaid peace proposition we consider it our duty to address ourselves particularly to you, as the representatives of a nation that is at the head of the coalition which is engaged in war against Russia on an extensive front. Soldiers, Brothers! We ask you to stand by us and Socialism with all your might in this struggle for an immediate peace, as the latter is the only means to ensure an equitable and permanent peace to the laboring classes of all countries and to heal all the wounds which the present most criminal of all wars has inflicted on humanity. Brothers, German Soldiers! The great example of your comrade, Karl Liebknecht, the most eminent leader of international Socialism, the perseverant and long-continued struggle that you have conducted by publishing newspapers, and pamphlets, by numerous demonstrations and strikes, the struggle for which your Government has thrown in'o prison hundreds and thousands of your comrades, lastly the heroic revolt of your sailors of the fleet serve as a guaranty to us that the mass of the laboring class of your nation are ready to enter the decisive struggle for peace. Brothers, lend us a hand! If you will do so, there will not be the slightest doubt that the cause of peace, at least on the continent of Europe, will take the upper hand in a couple of days, that a most speedy and equitable peace will be ensured and that the other belligerent Powers will join such a peace. If you will help us in our task to create a union between the workmen and the peasants and to bring about a gradual transition to Socialism in Russia, a task which for Russia alone presents immense difficulties, then your capacity of organization, your experience, your preparedness for the organization of the working masses will ensure without fail the transition to Socialism. Hasten to our assistance! In the name of the Workmen and Peasant Government we guarantee that our soldiers shall not move a single step forward if you decisively take the flag of peace into your hands and even if the struggle for peace inside your country will take away part of your forces from our front. Enough of bloodshed! Long live peace! Long live the brotherly Union of Workmen of all countries! Long live the International Socialistic Revolution! Chairman of the Council of People's Commissaries: Vladimir Oulianoff (Lenine) People's Commissary for Foreign Affairs Leon Trotzky 23
