Goldsmiths Socialist Students Society: Russia 1917 - When workers took power

Wednesday 1st November 2017, 14:15

Richard Hoggart Building, room RHB 220a, Goldsmiths College, University of London, Dixon Rd, London SE14 6YZ

We will be talking about the successes and failures of the revolution and how we can use the lessons of it to build a new society in the 21st century.
