del_rob

Rady Delegatów Robotniczych zaczęły powstawać w Polsce w 1918 r. Niektóre zostały szybko zneutralizowane przez nurty reformistyczne, inne utworzyły swoją własną milicję, Czerwoną Gwardię i otwarcie kwestionowały tworzące się państwo polskie. W ich strukturach działały przeróżne radykalne nurty polityczne, walczące o wpływy między sobą. Wśród nich była Socjaldemokracja Królestwa Polskiego i Litwy (SDKPiL), Polska Partia Socjalistyczna (PPS), PPS-Lewica, Komunistyczna Partia Robotnicza Polski (KPRP), czy Bund. Poniższa galeria to zbiór ulotek, odezw i zdjęć z tego okresu.
