Public Meeting: Why Study the Russian Revolution
Important Venue Notes
Sponsored by the International Youth & Students For Social Equality and Socialist Equality Party
Across the world, millions of people want to know what socialism is, as they search for solutions to rising poverty, social inequality, and the US’s never-ending wars worldwide. Some, including Senator Bernie Sanders, claim socialism is compatible with support for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.
But to learn what socialism really is, one must examine the world-changing Russian Revolution of 1917. How did it forever alter history, giving rise to the most powerful and progressive social movements of the last century? How was the working class able to take power?
Joseph Kishore, national secretary of the Socialist Equality Party, will review the causes, consequences and enduring significance of the Russian Revolution.
