The October Revolution
Celebrating the Anniversary of the October Revolution, it is useful to remember the victory of the proletariat on imperialism, within the history of the workers' and communist movements.
The bourgeoisie, imperialists are those who say that it is useless to celebrate such and other anniversaries, because they want to delete from history their defeats, and the victories of the proletariat.
But we communists, proletarians, must look at our own victories, because they continue to indicate us the path to win again today.
The October Revolution is meaningful today so and more than before, especially if we see what it has been. The image that most of all makes clear what the October Revolution ha been is Lenin, who with a broom sweeps away all the powers of his era.
The concept of sweeping away the rulers, their state and government is that we choose to put at the focus of this anniversary, because we think that this is now the main task of all those who want to change the existing status of things. We have to sweep away the rulers, if we just want to think to have jobs, wages, social services, a decent life.
To sweep away the rulers, their government, their state, the capitalist system, today imperialist system, that created them, this is today the meaning of the October Revolution. The October Revolution still offers the indication to go on this path.
