Event description

Description

Russia's great revolutionary year began with a demonstration for bread on International Women’s Day. Within a week, the February Revolution had toppled the Tsar. Workers and soldiers began to take control of their own destiny. October saw the greatest anti-capitalist uprising in history as ordinary people overthrew the state and started to run society themselves.

From that moment, socialism has been a demand across the globe. The debate about these events has shaped every struggle for social change. One hundred years on, join us to discuss this history and its meaning for 21st century socialism.
