100 Years Ago: Revolution in Germany

Long Island University in Brooklyn – One University Plaza in Brooklyn, NY
The Bolshevik Tendency are hosting Session 1 on Saturday June 29th, 10:00am – 12:00pm in Room H316
The German revolution of 1918-19 attempted to overthrow capitalism and establish a Socialist Republic. Unlike the Russian revolution a year earlier the German uprising ended in defeat. Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, leading members of the young Communist Party of Germany, were murdered by reactionaries. What can we learn from this defeat in our struggle against capitalism? Come and discuss the way forward!
