Neil Faulkner: Peoples History of Russian Revolution (non-LSS)

Description: Everybody's Reading Festival event ( http://www.everybodysreading.co.uk/ )

Dr Neil Faulkner will be discussing 'A People's History of the Russian Revolution', the title of his latest book ( http://www.leftbookclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Peoples-History-of-the-Russian-Revolution.pdf ).

2017 is the centenary of the much misunderstood Russian Revolution. Neil Faulkner debunks the myths to show how a mass movement of militant millions destroyed a 300 year old regime of landlords, profiteers and warmongers.

Faulkner argues that the revolution was an explodion of participatory democracy from below that shook world capitalism to its foundations, though very soon destroyed by counter-revolution.

With Red Leicester Choir.

Neil Faulkner is an archaeologist, historian, writer, lecturer, broadcaster and political activist! Secular Hall is the ideal venue for his talk and he'd enjoy having a socialist choir to sing.

Sponsored by Leicester NUT and Leicester Social Forum.
