The Occupy movement nationally has drawn inspiration from the revolts and revolutions happening from Tunisia to Egypt to Greece and Chile. It has also in turn inspired millions to see struggle as the only way to win. There are many questions in our movement about whether this is a revolution, or if not, how people's ideas change in favor of a revolution? The Russian Revolution of 1917 gives us a historical glimpse into how mass movements turned into a revolution that put working people into the seat of power for the first time in history.
