Celebrating the Bolshevik Revolution
According to the blog All Power to the Soviets;
- In October 1917, the working people of the Russian Empire stood up and took power in the first successful socialist revolution. With the Bolshevik Party playing a leading role, the workers, peasants, and oppressed peoples opened up a new chapter in the history of humanity. They showed the world that revolutionary people’s power is possible.
- The New Orleans Workers Group has taken time this October to honor these heroes for the sacrifices they made towards a better future for the workers and oppressed peoples of the world. We have carried out cadre study groups, and had a showing of Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein’s landmark film, October: 10 Days that Shook the World.
- We also had a lovely party and public forum on the Revolution, which included presentations on pre-revolutionary Russia, the role of the Bolshevik Party, the development of the Soviet Union in a global context, and the contemporary class struggle — all stressing the continuing need for Revolution today. Speakers included long-time revolutionary organizers Malcolm Suber and Gavrielle Gemma, as well as two young revolutionaries from south Louisiana, Quest Riggs and Gregory William.
