The original Russian revolution was an unplanned, unorganised revolt against the harsh and impossible conditions of the ordinary people. This happened in late February of 1917. By July, the consequent unrest led to armed anti-government demonstrations of industrial workers and soldiers against the provisional government who were still landowners and not ordinary workers, despite their wish to make life easier for the working man.
The July Days were this period of demonstrations during which rival factions expressed their views vociferously. This resulted in a temporary weakening of Bolshevik influence.
Then there was the formation of a new Provisional Government, under a different leader. It was only three months before this itself was routed, and the Bolshevik power returned thanks to the leadership of Lenin who manned a bloodless coup.
The July days is a series of events armed anti-government demonstrations of industrial workers and soldiers, it took place in Petrograd, Russia from the 3 – 7th of July in 1917.
Lvov resigns as leader of the provisional government and Alexander Kerensky took over and crushed the demonstration. Kerensky issued the arrest of Lenin who was hiding.
The result of these events was a victory for the government, dispersion of demonstrations and the arrest of Bolsheviks leaders because the Government blamed the Bolsheviks leaders for the violence brought by the July days.
