April 22 is the anniversary of Lenin's birth. Revolutionaries all over the world remember one of the greatest among them on this day. But for communists, remembering birthdates is not about fetishising personalities but rather about engaging with their ideas and keeping alive the memory of their contributions (which the bourgeois media and writers would rather obliterate and caricature). It is in this tradition that Pragoti brings to its readers one of Lenin's most significant writings: The April Theses.
The Russian Revolution is the mightiest event of the World War. Its outbreak, its unexampled radicalism, its enduring consequences, constitute the clearest condemnation of the lying phrases which official Social-Democracy so zealously supplied at the beginning of the war as an ideological cover for German imperialism’s campaign of conquest.
Pragoti commemorates the 91st anniversary of the October Revolution in Russia in 1917.
