Tensions arose in Pinsk, Belarus beginning in the latter part of 1905. On December 22, the governor imposed “the strictest level of control” allowing Cossacks and policemen to conduct searches and make arrests. Cossacks terrorized the city, raining murderous blows on those who crossed their path. A long series of searches and arrests began. During the first week of “strictest control,” forty people were arrested, including seven Jews. Conflict erupted between the police and the Association of the Russian People, and the results of the elections to the first sovereign Duma led to attempts to provoke a pogrom. On March 6, 1906, a law known as the October Manifesto was proclaimed which promised a number of freedoms, but only the right to form trade associations remained. Reaction intensified in 1907, and the authorities also began to persecute members of the Poalei Zion Party and the Sionisty Socialisty Party. Many people left Pinsk in the period preceding World War I and migrated to the cities of Palestine.
