They marched to the Tsar's Winter Palace in St. Petersburg in order to peacefully present petitions to him but palace guards fired on the crowd. Angry demonstrations began and the Tsar was forced to make certain concessions to the people to restore order. If by "first Russian Revolution" you mean the February Revolution of 1917, it was started by a spontaneous demonstration of discontent with the government's inability to provide food and manufactured goods and to end the war in Europe. The initially small demonstration grew larger and larger as more workers, peasants and even soldiers joined the demonstrations and it became a full fledged revolt.
