Father Gapon was the one that lead this protest. 150 000 people took the cold and snow covered streets of St.Petersburg to protest about their lifestyle.

THE PETITION THEY CARRIED STARTED: " Oh Sire, we working men and inhebitants of St,Petersburg, our wives, our children and our parents, helpless and aged women and men, have come to You our ruler, in search of justice and protection. We beggars, we oppressed and overburned with work, we are insulted, we are not looked on as human beings but as slaves. The moment has come for us when death would be better than the proplongation of our intorable sufferings. We are seeking here our last salvation. Do not refuse to help Your people. Destroy the wall between Yourself and Your people'
The people trusted on Father Gapon so much that they asked him for help
There were so so much people dead that suddenly the protest became known as 'Bloody Sunday'
