“[In the 1905 Russian Revolution] there fermented throughout the whole of the immense empire an uninterrupted economic strike of almost the entire proletariat against capital – a struggle which caught, on the one hand, all the petty bourgeois and liberal professions, commercial employees, technicians, actors and members of artistic professions – and on the other hand, penetrated to the domestic servants, the minor police officials and even to the stratum of the lumpenproletariat, and simultaneously surged from the towns to the country districts and even knocked at the iron gates of the military barracks.” — Rosa Luxemburg, ‘The Mass Strike’

Speaker: Peter Hudis, co-editor of ‘The Letters of Rosa Luxemburg’ (Complete Works of Rosa Luxemburg Vol. I) 2011.

With comments by Kevin Anderson, author of ‘Marx at the Margins’, David Black, author of ‘The Philosophic Roots of Anti-Capitalism’, and Heather Brown, author of ‘Marx on Gender and the Family’
