With guest speaker, Rob Sewell - author of "In the Cause of Labour" and political editor of Socialist Appeal.

100 years ago, on 7th November 1917, the workers and peasants of Russia - led by Lenin and the Bolsheviks - took power, overthrew the capitalists, and set about transforming society.

The October Revolution, for socialists, was the single greatest event in human history - the first time that the exploited masses have risen up, fought back, and won.

To commemorate this centenary anniversary, the LSEsu Marxist society invites you to join us for a discussion about the significance of the 1917 Russian Revolution and the lessons that it holds for today in the fight to change the world.
