The sailors then supported the strike and sent demands which included free elections to the soviets, freedom of speech, press, assembly and organisation to workers, peasants, anarchists and left-socialists, the equalisation of wages and the end of roadblock detachments restricting travel and the ability of workers to bring food into the city.
