“The world political situation as a whole is chiefly characterized by a historical crisis of the leadership of the proletariat.”

– Leon Trotsky

Trotsky hard at study

The fight to overthrow capitalism cannot be carried out without the direct participation of the working class. But in order to win over the most advanced layers of workers and youth to the banner of communism, we must first conquer an understanding of revolutionary ideas for ourselves.

Each talk at the festival has been chosen for this exact purpose: to develop revolutionary leadership.

From introductory talks on the Marxist method, to sessions on how to apply it to the burning questions of the class struggle, there is something to sharpen the theoretical weapons of any and all serious revolutionaries.
