The life and ideas of Leon Trotsky, the co-leader with Lenin of the
Russian Revolution and the founder of the Fourth International, are of immense contemporary significance. Up to the moment of his death at the hands of a Stalinist agent in 1940, seventy years ago, Trotsky defended the principles of international socialism against its many betrayers.

As workers and young people come into conflict with a political and economic system that is breaking down, they will look once again to the life of Trotsky, the supreme strategist of world revolution.

On Tuesday, November 16th, the International Student for Social Equality @ SDSU will host a lecture by David North on the historical and political legacy of Leon Trotsky. The Lecture will be held in Communication 207 at 7 pm. Please join us to discuss the life of the most revolutionary figure in the twentieth century.


David North is the chairman of the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site and the national chairman of the Socialist Equality Party. He has been a leading figure in the Fourth International for nearly four decades, and is the author of numerous works on socialist history and politics--most recently, In Defense of Leon Trotsky, a critique of several recent biographies on Leon Trotsky.
