Popular uprising

In 1953 hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in cities across East Germany, protesting increased demands on labor. The demonstrations later also called for free elections and the resignation of the government.
The Soviet military, summoned in at the request of the East German government, met the protesters with heavy resistance, including the use of tanks.
Gauck described the "wave of euphoria" he experienced as a 13-year-old boy during the uprising, and the bitter fate experienced by the protesters after their defeat. The uprising helped to inspire other freedom movements, he said, including the Prague Spring.
Because of the rebellion, millions of people - workers, students, farmers and housewives - rose up "in anger over injustice and intolerable conditions," Gauck said. "So many paid for their courage with great sacrifice, some also with life."

The Uprising of 1953 in East Germany started with a strike by East Berlin construction workers on June 16, 1953. It turned into a widespread uprising against the German Democratic Republic government the next day.

The uprising in East Berlin was violently suppressed by tanks of the Group of Soviet Forces in Germany and the Volkspolizei. In spite of the intervention of Soviet troops, the wave of strikes and protests was not easily brought under control. Even after 17 June, there were demonstrations in more than 500 towns and villages.

Bolshevism Unmasked

Faced with the spontaneous movement of the E. German workers the Ulbricht government was completely paralysed. In several instances the ordinary police seemed unsure of themselves, and even where they remained firmly supportive of the bureaucrats they seemed far too indecisive. In several towns they were so ineffective that their resistance crumbled instantly.

The Bolshevik bureaucracy was normally licked before the battle had even started. The obvious rottenness of the regime began to show through from the afternoon of June 16th. None of the more senior ministers had dared appear before the furious crowd which massed outside their windows in Leipzigstrasze and that same evening saw quite a few leading Party bureaucrats packing their bags to leave. At this junctive the streets were already under control of the masons, welders, type-setters, and carpenters; Columbushouse and Potsdammer Place were not yet burning, that was to happen the next day, but certainly all the dreams of the ruling-class had already gone up in smoke. Whilst the working-class had not yet seized power it was certain that the government no longer possessed it.

And the German Bolsheviks would never have been able to repossess this power without the Russian Amy and Russian tanks. With-out their entering the action, in Berlin and many other rebellious towns, if the Russians had not gone ahead with a state of siege with mass arrests and with executing quite a number of workers, the fall of the regime would indeed have been settled.
