The next meeting of the MDF will take place at 2pm on Saturday 17th December at The Woodman, New Canal Street Birmingham B5 5LG This pub is only half a mile from New Street Station.
The Topic is "The Relevance of the Russian Revolution today"
The Russian Revolution took place 100 years ago next year. So is it still important and why? The ruling class tries to have us ignore real history of class struggle in Russia and both left and right spread the lies that the the brutal Stalinist regime was a communist regime. Certainly there a very many different views of its significance even to those who believe it was initially a positive step forward for the working class. In this discussion we hope to give opportunities to discuss the revolution itself but also the conditions is took place in as well as the conditions of its decline and see how and whether these ideas impact upon the activities of the working class's political minorities today.
