Happy 96th Birthday: the Bolshevik Revolution

Today is the 96th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution which took place in Russia on 7 November 1917 (Julian calendar). Hope you enjoy this Youtube clip "Soviet Anthem with Propaganda Posters". It is also the birthday of some other folk. I am sharpening my ice pick in his memory :)

Some of us think it was the counter -revolution and that it strangled the infant democracy.
