The Russian Revolution: When Workers Took Power
8 March, 2017

2017 marks 100 years since the Russian revolution, and in that time attempts to discredit it have been continuous. This isn't for no reason - the debate about Russia more than simply a historic curiosity. The revolution was the greatest ever assault on world capitalism. It proved that it is possible for workers to rise up and not only break an authoritarian and exploitative system, but take control of society and run the world themselves. Though it was eventually defeated, the revolution opened up the possibility of overthrowing world capitalism and beginning a new system based on co-operation, peace and genuine equality.
Join Socialist Alternative Adelaide for a public meeting to discuss the Russian revolution 100 years later, and learn how our side can win!
