Thurs, 1/12, Boston, "Discussion on the Russian Revolution of 1917"

7pm, Haymarket People's Fund, 42 Seaverns Ave, Jamaica Plain (map)

The Russian Revolution of 1917 remains to this day the most decisive event of the international working class. From the overthrow of the Tsar to the creation of a workers' government, the Russian working class radicalized and developed into a powerful force. There are many lessons to be learned from how the workers radicalized, to how they developed soviets (workers' councils) to the role of the Bolshevik party.

In the context of the Arab Spring and a global occupation movement, it is key that we discuss the lessons from our history.

Please join us for an introductory talk followed by a discussion. All are welcome.

We will be reading and discussing the following article to prepare.
