Description

In October, Russian workers and peasants finished the work of throwing out the old regime, so they could begin to build their own society. But they were invaded, surrounded by armies from every power, including the United States. Even so, eventually they won. What were they able to do? What blocked them from building socialism? What does the experience of their revolution, 100 years ago, mean for us today? Today, with capitalism finally reasserting itself in Russia, Russia is going backwards. And what does this mean for us? Doors open at 4:30 pm. Event starts promptly at 5:00 pm.
