Statement of Socialist Unity Party and Struggle-La Lucha for Socialism on the 100th anniversary of the death of V.I. Lenin.
It’s really a shame that Vladimir Lenin is such a maligned figure in the capitalist world. Not surprising, but a shame.
If more people knew the truth about Lenin and the Russian Revolution, they’d see another Che, another Harriet Tubman, or another Geronimo.
And not necessarily the liberation fighters as individuals but the mass struggles they led and were part of and what they won for their people. They won their liberation. They won their ability to determine their own futures.
If more people knew about Lenin, that would mean more people knowing another example that, if the masses of working and oppressed people can come together and get organized, we can fight for and win a better world.
And not only CAN we — we MUST. The same way Palestine MUST be free. Because ALL of our futures are at stake.
We honor the anniversary of Lenin’s death every year, but in this hundredth year, at this historical moment, we pay particular tribute. More people must be strengthened by the true history of the Russian Revolution.
