4-weekly discussion circle – Lessons of October: Learning from the 1917 Russian Revolution

What makes a modern revolution successful? A four-week study group will explore the short book Lessons of October by Leon Trotsky, based on his experience as a leader of the Russian Revolution. Trotsky asserts that creating fundamental changes requires a working-class party — and one that is not doctrinaire but is able to gauge and respond to swiftly changing conditions. His work is a valuable resource for activists who want to understand the dynamics of today’s “pop-up movements” and upsurges like the Arab Spring.

We’ll meet each Wednesday, 4 - 25 October, 6.30 pm.

Lessons of October is available for $20 at Solidarity Salon.

Dinner served at 6.30 pm for a $10 donation. Discussion starts at 7.00 pm

Location: Solidarity Salon (address and travel information is above).

To join the study group and get the book or further information, contact the FSP: freedom.socialist.party@ozemail.com.au or 03-9388-0062.

Wednesday 8 November, 6:30 pm

8-session study circle: Democracy and Revolution

If this is democracy, why do we feel insecure, ignored and powerless? Join in this timely study of U.S. Marxist writer George Novack’s Democracy & Revolution.

Novack traces democracy’s 2,500-year evolution, from its roots in ancient Greece and rise through revolutionary upsurges to its decline in modern capitalism. We’ll also explore the democracy a workers’ socialist revolution could achieve.

We’ll meet alternate Wednesdays, commencing 8 November.

Democracy & Revolution is available for $28 at Solidarity Salon.

Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm for a $10 donation.

Location: Solidarity Salon (address and travel information is above).
