An emotional and touching edit by Omnistar East on the 1991 august coup and 1993 constitutional crisis

I would argue to temper the anger though.

Too many comrades, when first organizing, burn themselves out mentally. Fight for justice, not simply because you’re angry. Fight because you have a right to, because you deserve better and so do your friends and loved ones, but temper yourself as well.

revolutionary optimism right beside its fury!

Yep! Exactly!

Russian Rockband Radio Tapok did a song about this.

RADIO TAPOK - Black October

Lyrics:

Thirty years ago, Moscow met the ninety-third year in the wreckage of the barricades. Yeltsin overthrew the elected parliament, but upon learning that he had been removed, he immediately brought in troops.

Take before dawn, the house of the supreme council! Bring out the parts that are loyal to our power In battle, the landing regiment, the Kremlin gave his command The army is with us and the rebellion will fall!

We wrote our history Brush framed mode Red blood on the white house Under blue sky, Where was the black smoke?

The parties urged the generals to swear allegiance under their control and obey the order! Tanks fired in volleys, shells tore through the walls, special forces stood at the gates.

Under the president’s arrest, seize the television center Burn the barricades, it’s the new usurper! Wear vests, power to the Supreme Council! The truth is behind us, and the Kremlin will fall!

We wrote our history Brush framed mode Red blood on the white house Under blue sky, Where was the black smoke?

Moscow will meet a new day Will meet hundreds of deaths And the autumn rain will wash the blood from the hands of her children

And under the noisy march of soldiers On the ruins of the barricades That illusion of a republic met its sunset

We wrote our history Brush framed mode Red blood on the white house Under blue sky, Where was the black smoke?
