    100th Anniversary of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution

    LIVESTREAM of the COMMEMORATIVE FORUM in MANHATTAN
    on 100 YEARS OF GLOBAL REVOLUTION!
    by the 1917 CENTENARY COMMITTEE
    This is the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution of 1917, when the workers and peasants of Russia overthrew their ruling class and established a revolutionary socialist workers government. It spread to all the nationalities that had been brutally oppressed by the czarist empire.
    These events ignited 100 years of global revolution that helped create the conditions for, and gave material, military and economic aid to, liberation movements and revolutions in Africa, Asia and Latin America, including the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
    This forum — WHICH WE WILL WATCH LIVE FROM NYC — will bring together activists to shed some light on the true nature of the Russian Revolution and of socialism, which has been misrepresented for far too long. Far from being the destructive event of establishment lore, it proved that it was possible to run society without capitalists.
    After seizing state power, the Bolsheviks decreed an immediate withdrawal of Russia from WWI, set an eight-hour working day and a minimum wage, abolished private property, ended the czarist anti-gay laws, produced a marriage code that asserted the complete equality of rights between spouses, legalized abortion, provided maternity leave, lifted the onerous restrictions on divorce, and legally recognized children born outside of marriage.
    Hear about the formation of the first Workers’ State! (after the Paris Commune of 1871)
