Bread and Justice

Oxford University Press

Some kind of a democratic order had been the hope of much of privileged Petrograd. With Kerensky's failure to return, and little hope of the forcible ouster of the upstart government, Petrograd's white-collar citizens adopted the strategies of non-cooperation, strikes and boycotts, and electoral politics. Within a few days of the Bolshevik take-over, the striking pharmacists were joined by the employees of the Post Office, the State Bank, and several ministries. The city Duma refused to recognize the new government and, ordering its administration (uprava) not to co-operate, continued to meet and to discuss everyday items as though nothing had happened.
