Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
so-called Workers' Councils. The latter were self-established (not Party-controlled) councils at workplaces, demanding a Socialist state but with multi-party system and independent unions.

Minor addition: the very first Worker's Council was established a day before the revolution, in the iron smelter of the city today called Dunaújváros. This city was founded just years before as a model city, then under the name Sztálinváros (Stalin-city). Model cities were generously funded and filled with loyal workers. So the system was really hit at its core when rebellion broke out first there.
