100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution

 

Dear Friends,

A hundred years ago, yesterday, the people of the Tsarist empire overthrew a vacillating government to protect and extend their first revolution of February 1917. These men and women - such as those above - founded the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). This new state - a state of the workers and peasants - produced a new kind of possibility, that a socialist state could be created and that a socialist society might be possible.

I was in England last week to join in the commemoration of the events of 1917 held by the Marx Memorial Library and the Trades Union Congress
