Kronstadt 16 March 1921

According to the wonderful Daily Bleed, on this day in 1921:
Russia: Bolsheviks stage final bloody assault on rebellious Kronstadt sailors. Kronstadt put Trotsky in power & Trotsky has squashed Kronstadt, shot its rebels like partidges. He has earned the sobriquet, the "Red Butcher".
Links: Kronstadt 1921, Spartacus, People's History, the Demands of the Insurgents and their publication, Murray Bookchin

P.S. Just noticed this, from a nice Borough Market visitor. And this, from an evil Leninist monster. Makes it easy for me to think which side I'm on.
