Queer and Feminist Reading Group: October Song
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=15159
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Zoom link will be posted shortly
Join us as we read Paul LeBlanc’s account of the Russian Revolution, October Song. What lessons can the Russian Revolution give to us today? What actually happened before and after the working class took power? How do conditions in society dictate our strategies and tactics? How would we, in a modern context, wrest power from the ruling class?
This week, we’ll be discussing Chapter 7, Majority of the People, about the debate between a populist and Marxist revolutionary view of how the movement towards socialism could be accomplished, particularly in pre-Revolutionary Russia and beyond. Would a revolution occur based on the peasantry or the working class?
All are welcome to join for lively discussion and comradely community. This reading group meets every two weeks. If you haven’t been to one of our previous discussions, that’s OK! We’d love to have you. Email [email protected] to get a copy of the reading.
