It was a socialist revolution in which the working class, through the Soviets (democratic councils of action) and under the leadership of the Bolsheviks, overthrew the absolute monarchy and capitalist class.

The revolution, which continues to reverberate internationally today, is rich in lessons for Marxism and the wider socialist movement.

The critical events of the revolution and its aftermath, including the Stalinist counter-revolution, will be explained and analysed on this new site.
