Anniversary today of the Great October Socialist Revolution

Editorial Board,
Rizospastis - Greece

Ninety-six years ago today, the Great October Socialist Revolution took place. It was the most momentous event in the 20th century. It paved the way for the development of a higher level of social evolution, in the form of socialism, with a view to the classless communist society. It embodied the dreams and hopes of the "damned of the Earth" to storm heaven on earth. Red October became a base and a launchpad for the operation of an enormous effort of resistance by millions of ordinary working people, to abolish class exploitation. It was the creation of the organized political struggle of the popular masses led by the working class, which in turn was led by the Communist Party, that confirmed humanity had entered a new historical era. The revolution showed, from the early 20th century onward, that capitalism is historically obsolete as socioeconomic system and can not drive social change towards progress, so it needs to replaced by its gravediggers.
