"The history of a revolution is for us first of all a history of the forcible entrance of the masses into the realm of rulership over their own destiny." —Leon Trotsky

Contrary to what most of us have been taught, the Russian Revolution was not a coup made by a small band of zealous Bolshevik conspirators who terrorized the passive Russian masses.

In reality, it was a revolution from the bottom up, made by millions of regular people stepping onto the stage of history to fight for a better society. The Bolshevik party was a vibrant group of hundreds of thousands of fiercely democratic, self-confident activists of & for the working classes, committed to the politics of revolution as self-emancipation.

Come to this meeting to learn & discuss what really happened in Russia in 1917, how revolution from below works, & what lessons we can take forward to our struggles for justice today.
