Join us as we read Chapter 5 of 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 5 (“Global Context”) and the importance of internationalism for socialist revolutionaries. What was the global context that the fledgling Soviet Republic, immediately after the revolution, had to grapple with? What working class struggles were going on elsewhere in the world? What were the Communist Internationals?
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.
We’ll meet over Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/932925026 or call (669) 900-6833, meeting ID: 932 925 026#
