The architect of the monument is Kārlis Plūksne.
On 12 January 1905, the people of Riga went on strike and the next day, without warning the Russian police opened fire on a crowd of peaceful demonstrators, killing 70 and wounding over two hundred. Many more were drowned as they tried to escape over the frozen Daugava. A stone near the monument refers to this event.
