Hmm...

Was the rebellion attempt almost one and a half years later already being prepared by some of the marching peasants?

Lapua inspired "peasant march" to Helsinki in 1930?

You are so close iffig.
Your answer covers the first photo, but not the second, where the bloodles and unsuccessful rebellion is on the way...
