“The October Revolution and Some Lessons for The Struggle for Socialism in the U.S.” available as pamphlet
Minneapolis, MN – Freedom Road Socialist Organization’s paper, The October Revolution and some lessons for the struggle for socialism in the U.S. is now available as a pamphlet.
This paper was prepared collectively by the central leadership of Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO). It was presented by FRSO leading member Frank Chapman at the Centennial Commemoration of the October Revolution, held in New York City, in early July 2017. The event was sponsored by People’s Response for International Solidarity and Mass Mobilization (PRISM) in cooperation with the U.S. member organizations of the International League of People’s Struggle (ILPS-US).
Emphasizing the significance of the change that took place in Russia, 1917, the paper points out, “The October Revolution was a world-changing event. At one stroke, it settled the question of whether another world was possible. Releasing one-sixth of the world from the chains of wage slavery, it smashed the myth that rule by the few was a sort of permanent condition, and, by successfully establishing proletarian political power, the October Revolution succeeded in opening the road to socialist construction. And for the years that followed the great achievements of the Soviet Union, that created a new and better way of life and would exercise a powerful effect on working and oppressed people around the globe.”
