On the 8 November 2017, the Alternative Information and Development Centre (AIDC) and Amandla! Media hosted John Molyneux (former leader of the SWP) on the centenary of the October Revolution.
In reflecting on the legacy of October 1917, Molyneux spoke to whether democracy and socialism are two-sides of the same coin, or if in fact democracy is the high cost of revolution.
Molyneux is a British Trotskyist, academic and author. He has been a leading member of the Socialist Workers Party before retiring to Ireland, where he became active in the Irish SWP and is editor of Irish Marxist Review.
