(Translated by Adrian Chan-Wyles PhD)
Russia was the birthplace of the October Revolution led by Lenin, and can be legitimately considered the home of the Socialist Revolution – (with the Soviet Union) being a great Revolutionary mentor. The victory of the October Revolution declared to the world that the Socialist System had transitioned from being an advanced theory (on paper) and into a practical reality, that initiated a ‘new era’ in human history.
November 7th, 2017, marks the 100th anniversary of the victory of the October Revolution. This rare and historic opportunity happens only once in a hundred years, and so Star Fire Travel organized the ‘100th Anniversary of the October Revolution: Memory, Reconciliation and Hope trip’ – as the theme of this trip to (Moscow) Russia, is that of returning to the homeland of the October Revolution, to cherish the memory of Lenin, and recognise the brilliant achievements of the October Revolution.
This delegation from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was officially invited to Russia by the Communist Party of Russia, to take part in a march in memory of the October Revolution, with a chance to carry Red Flags (of differing designs), and hold-up placards of Lenin, Stalin, Che Guevara and Mao Zedong. As this was a very special events, the PRC delegation photographed and filmed extensively, with the intention of creating an educational documentary for release in China. People came from all over the world, and we were all treated with the utmost respect by the Russian people. Whilst on the march, we all joined together to sing the ‘Internationale’!
