(Before It's News)

New York, NY – Over 100 people gathered here on Nov. 7 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution. The event was in honor of the win by the Bolsheviks in 1917, in which the working class seized power from the capitalists and overthrew the tsarist monarchy to form the Soviet Union.

The event was organized by the 1917 Centenary Committee, with speakers from both national and international socialist organizations. The speeches talked about the history of the revolution, as well as what communists should be doing today to build revolution.

Michela Martinazzi of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization emphasized the need for communists in the working class to build a vanguard party, saying “Communist leadership is not preordained, it is earned. Communists must put forward clarity of political line, organizational capacity and hard work. We must enter the work and learn among the people, not nitpick and criticize from academic ivory towers.”

Martinazzi also talked about the strategic alliance between the working class and oppressed nationalities in the U.S., stating, “At the core of the united front against imperialism is the strategic alliance of the workers, the oppressed nations and nationalities – African Americans, Chicanos, Hawaiians and others. This is central to the strategy for revolution in the U.S. We uphold the oppressed nationality movements and promote militant, working-class leadership within them. At the same time, we need to build a strong multi-national working-class movement that fights against national chauvinism, sexism and homophobia.”
