This year is the 90th anniversary of the Russian revolution. But why take the Russian revolution as a model? Isn't it irrelevant nowadays, or worse, proof that revolution can't work? Didn't the Bolsheviks lead to Stalin's dictatorship?

We will be discussing the idea that the revolution was a high point - even the hight point - in working-class history so far, and that understanding the experience of the Russian workers in 1917 and after is crucial to fighting for a society without exploitation or oppression today.
