About the society
The Stalin Society was formed in 1991 to defend JV Stalin and his work on the basis of fact, and to refute the capitalist, revisionist, opportunist and Trotskyist propaganda directed against him.
Stalin’s name is synonymous with communism, the October Revolution, and the overthrow of capitalist exploitation and imperialist tyranny. For this reason, the international bourgeoisie have spearheaded their attacks on working and oppressed peoples by slandering Stalin and the Soviet Union.
They have employed a variety of tactics to this end over the last 90 years, but have been guided to a large extent by dissidents who betrayed the Soviet people, most notably Leon Trotsky. The powerful US-based Hearst press, sympathetic to Hitler, was a pioneer in these methods, but the rest of the capitalist world’s media and political elites have not lagged behind.
All welcome to this meeting who are genuinely interested in the content, ready to listen respectfully to the speaker and wishing to take part constructively in the discussion that follows.
