Coventry Socialist Party are holding a special public meeting on Wednesday 25th October at 7.30pm, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

We are very pleased to announce that our main speaker will be former Labour MP Dave Nellist.

The Russian Revolution was the greatest event in human history – it saw the overthrow of Tsarism and the abolition of capitalism with the workers taking power led by the Bolsheviks.

With capitalism currently in a deep crisis and socialism increasingly on the agenda in Britain and around the world we will be looking back at what happened in 1917 and what the lessons are for today’s struggles. This will be an excellent meeting not to be missed!

Wednesday 25th October
Methodist Hall, Coventry, CV1 2HA
Main speaker – Dave Nellist
7.30pm

We have created a dedicated website with articles, background information, timelines and analysis – click here to check it out!

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

Corinthia is the author of an article in the current issue of The Socialist newspaper and a trade union activist. All interested in learning about what took place and how it relates to the struggles and campaigns of today are welcome. There will be plenty of time for discussion and debate.

The new section of the website celebrating the Russian Revolution!

Coventry Socialist Party are pleased to announce the launch of a new section on our website in preparation for the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution. 2017 will see a sustained attack on the ideas of Socialism, Marxism and Bolshevism as the defenders of the capitalist system seek to denounce and denigrate the events of 1917, where working class people took power.

We will be publishing articles to both set the record straight and draw out the historical lessons to be able to apply them to battles against capitalism today. As well as articles we will also be holding public meetings, rallies and discussions to help understand what took place.

The new section can be found on the menu bar of the website (see picture above) and so far contains a welcome and intro, and two further articles. The first is Russia’s 1917 socialist revolution and the second is the editorial from the current issue of Socialism Today.
