1917revolution.org website to launch
- The Committee for a Workers' International (CWI) launches new website (20 January) celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution
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 critical events of the revolution and its aftermath, including the Stalinist counter-revolution, will be explained and analysed on this new site.
