Map showing meeting hall
A meeting and social celebrating the historic achievements made possible by the October revolution in Russia. This year, we will be marking the 97th anniversary of the October revolution by looking at just how it was the Bolsheviks were able to turn the imperialist war into a civil war for the overthrow of capitalist imperialism, and what lessons we can learn from their success.
We will also be looking at ‘What the Soviet Union did for us’ — how so many of the ‘democratic values’ that we are taught to associate with western capitalism actually came to workers in the West as a result of the October revolution.
Speeches will be followed by food and drink, and a chance to socialise with like-minded comrades. An inspiring evening to remind us all why we need socialism and what we have to do to get it!
