Index on Censorship: Russia’s revolution and our freedoms

Join us and Index on Censorship for a summer party to launch its upcoming issue exploring the impact of the Russian Revolution of 1917 on our freedoms today.

There’ll be pop-up provocations looking at contemporary influences of the Russian Revolution on propaganda, culture and politics from around the globe alongside live readings of speeches tracing the political rhetoric from Lenin to Putin. We’ll be serving beer from Flying Dog Breweryand all attendees will receive a free copy of the latest magazine.

This issue has reports from all corners of the globe including Uzbekistan, China, Russia, Cuba and Turkey. Writers for this issue include David Aaronovitch on film, Khrushchev’s great-granddaughter Nina Khrushcheva on living in the USA, and an interview with author Margaret Atwood on science censorship and her childhood in the wilderness.
