Commemorating the Russian Revolution on TPC/DCM

The October Socialist Revolution began November 7th (October 25th by the calendar the Russian Empire was using at the time), 1917, so this month's showing on Communist Voice is the 1986 Soviet video Chronicle of October - 1917, starting tonight.  The Occupy Movement should study the proletarian revolutions in Russia and elsewhere, instead of relying on small capitalist discourse, as it seems to right now.  Chronicle of October has been shown in full on The Peoples Channel before, but the Cyrillic credits and the opening scenes in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) had to be cut for space.  The video was donated by the US Friends of the Soviet People.  Communist Voice might soon switch to an hour long time slot, probably around the same time.
