Freedom Socialist Party November Calendar

80th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution Freedom Socialist Party Meeting Thursday 6 November, 7 pm The Once And Future Soviet Union As the twenty-first century approaches, historians are turning their minds to the important events of the last hundred years. In any objective analysis, the 1917 Russian Revolution must top the list of social transformations of the twentieth century. The workers and peasants of the Russian Empire tossed aside feudalism and capitalism in a political earthquake, the aftershocks of which are still shaking the foundations of imperialist rule.

On the eightieth anniversary of the Russian Revolution join us in a discussion about how the creation of the former Soviet Union shaped global politics. We'll analyse the collapse of European Stalinism, the importance of defending Cuba and other remaining workers' states, and the need for the working class to again rise to the challenge of building a planet-wide socialist society. And we'll toast the heroic women of St Petersburg, whose defiant stand against war and starvation launched the century of revolutions.

A delicious Russian dinner will be served at 6.15 pm for a $5 donation. Refreshments available. It's at xxxxxxx Salon, 1 Appleby Cres, West xxxxxxx. All welcome!
