SEP meetings in California

The historical and political legacy of Leon Trotsky

11 November 2010

Seventy years after his death in 1940, Leon Trotsky, co-leader of the Russian Revolution and founder of the Fourth International, remains among the most contemporary political figures.

In the last 15 years of his life, Trotsky was forced into exile from the Soviet Union, hunted by Stalinist agents, denied a visa by all the major capitalist countries, and eventually assassinated at the hands of the GPU.

To this day, Trotsky remains the object of unrelenting attacks, including the publication of a series of biographies aimed at falsifying his role and significance.

David North will speak in San Diego and Pasadena, California on Trotsky's enduring historical and political legacy. North, chairman of the World Socialist Web Site editorial board and national chairman of the Socialist Equality Party, is a leading expert on Trotsky and the author of the recently published In Defense of Leon Trotsky.
