Comrades and friends,
This coming November 7 is the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik
Revolution, "Red October," which was the seminal event of the 20th century.
Despite the triumphalism of the bourgeoisie that proclaimed the "death of
communism" following the destruction of the Soviet Union, betrayed and
undermined by Stalinism, the lessons of the October Revolution continue to
be valid today. Join us in celebrating the centenary of the revolution led
by Lenin and Trotsky that gave birth to the first workers state in history.
The Internationalist Group together with comrades of Trabajadores
Internacionales Clasistas and the newly formed Revolutionary
Internationalist Youth invite you to an event on *Sunday, November 5, at 6
p.m.* There will be a presentation, a photo display and slide show by the
TIC, plus music with songs of the revolution. The event will be
videoconferenced to comrades on the West Coast.
*Where:* *The Brooklyn Commons in downtown Brooklyn, 388 Atlantic Avenue
(between Hoyt and Bond Streets).
Closest subways: Hoyt-Schermerhorn station on the A, C and G lines. Also
Atlantic Ave./Barclay Center (2, 3, 4, 5, D, Q, R trains)
The Commons is a very comfortable and hospitable setting. Refreshments and
sandwiches from a neighborhood Arab deli will be available, coffee from the
Commons Café, and Russian spirits, as it were.
Below is the flier for the event. We would very much like our comrades and
supporters to celebrate together on this historic date. Definitely bring
friends and family. Note that this event is by invitation.
