This is an online event which welcomes all those who wish to help commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

David North is chairman of the WSWS International Editorial Board.

He has been a leader of the socialist movement for four decades.

He is an expert on the history of the Russian Revolution and the author of numerous works, including In Defense of Leon Trotsky and The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished 20th Century.

In the aftermath of the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, there emerged a new consensus among bourgeois academics that the Russian Revolution was little more than a political accident, an illegitimate and even criminal departure from the “normal” – i.e., capitalist – course of historical development. The monumental international political impact of the October Revolution and immense economic, social and cultural achievements of the Soviet Union were ignored and dismissed.

And yet, despite these claims, the October Revolution will live in history as the most significant political event of the twentieth century. The study of this revolution is an essential prerequisite for finding an answer to the worldwide crisis of the twenty-first century.
