Russian Revolution Centennial: Part 7 of 7
• Guillermo Herrera: The Status of Minority Nations within the USSR
ABSTRACT: The status of national minorities within the constituent republics of the USSR is a standard of human rights as compared to "Jim Crow" USA and British Empire. In 3 parts: 1) The Russian Empire; 2) The Stalin era (1927 to 1953); 3) The post-Stalin era (1954 to 1991)
• Antonio Trossero: A Trotskyist View of the Russian Revolution
ABSTRACT: This presentation will address three issues: 1. Trotsky-Lenin: Two Projects for a Revolution, 2. How an obtuse element like Josip Stalin was able to hijack the Communist Party? 3. There's no legacy left from the Russian Revolution, just a valuable lesson for the world's proletariat.
Antonio Trossero is an Argentinian metalworker and labor organizer who participated in the "Rosariazo" of September of 1969, when the metalworkers took over the city of Rosario for three days and 56 buses and trolleys that tried to run, in spite of the strike, were burnt.
In 1975 Antonio was active in the 60 days strike of the metalworkers of Villa Constitución, when all the leaders of his union were jailed. In 1976 Antonio was arrested by the Peronist government and he spent five years in jail during the military dictatorship; exiled to the United States, he continued his life of a proletarian here.
