Lenin LIVE: Wanted Bolshevik leader to livestream on Periscope from hideout
He has been keeping such a low profile that his followers weren’t sure he would reappear at all, but Lenin wouldn’t be such an enigma in any other case.
Earlier, on July 17, 1917, the Bolsheviks led a 500,000-strong rally of soldiers and workers protesting the Provisional Government in the streets of Petrograd. The authorities brutally clamped down on the rally.
A list of most prominent Bolshevik figures including Lenin were accused of treason and spying for the German side and were imprisoned immediately or put on the wanted list.
Having kept quiet for a while, now Lenin is back in 140-character-land and with a blast: he just announced that he will soon go live from his hiding place, raising his comrade followers’ hopes for a socialist revolution after all.
Stay tuned to find out whether Lenin will give away his whereabouts.
