Vladimir Lenin was the greatest revolutionary in history. He built the Bolshevik Party, which led the working class to power in the Russian Revolution of 1917—the greatest event in human history to date.

We republish a special episode of International Marxist Radio where Marxist.com editor Fred Weston analyzes the sudden turn in events in Palestine and explains how communists around the world should respond.

While bourgeois commentators hypocritically denounce any and every act of violence by the oppressed Palestinians, they turn a blind eye to the crushing dominance of the Israeli military. We say: End the occupation! Defend Gaza!...
