October 3rd, 2023 is the 30th Anniversary of Black October of 1993. This was a class we did last year around the anniversary then, but we couldn’t miss it for it’s 30th anniversary this year, so it is the first class we’ll be reusing. Black October was the name for the events which took place in Russia in 1993 when the new, capitalist Yeltsin administration attacked the House of Soviets, arrested lawmakers, ended the regional and local Soviets and all their institutions and adopted a new constitution for the country, beginning a period of Yeltsinite “shock therapy” capitalism in Russia that severely impacted the Russian people. This class will be Tuesday, October 3rd, from 8 pm EST – 9:30 pm EST and Thursday, October 5th, from 9 pm EST – 10:30 pm EST. (Remember that there is a public staff meeting at 8 pm EST preceding Thursday’s class if you’re interested in volunteering.)

If you’re new to PSMLS, the school provides free public collective education every week on Tuesdays and Thursdays on a variety of topics from a Marxist-Leninist perspective. You don’t have to be a member of anything or identify as any certain ideology to attend. The PSMLS is a Party of Communists USA initiated and sponsored school, but it is not a party school, which is great because it allows for a wide variety of different perspectives and opinions to be brought forth which don’t necessarily reflect the party line. If you are interested, you can join the PCUSA as an associate member at https://partyofcommunistsusa.net/join-the-pcusa/ or just check them out at partyofcommunistsusa.net.
Defend the Peoples School and Party of Communists USA! Last year we were attacked and sabotaged by ultra-left wreckers that tried to steal the PSMLS and destroy the PCUSA. They failed, but they will be held accountable and there are still things they took from us that we’ve not got back, like videos, imagery, audio etc. That is why we still need donations to the legal drive. If you support the school and want to see us continue to improve and keep delivering this education 51 weeks a year, please pitch in whatever you can and support the GoFundMe for the legal drive @ https://www.gofundme.com/f/legal-fund-to-defend-against-wreckers. Anything helps!
Help spread the word about the Peoples School by spreading our propaganda! You can find printable flyers, stickers, business cards and brochures at peoplesschool.us/media, and you can post them up, leave them somewhere or hand them out to other working class Americans. Feel free to take a picture of them being distributed show we can show our propaganda being spread across the nation! You can also promote the school AND support us by buying our Peoples School for Marxist-Leninist Studies merchandise from our CafePress store linked at peoplesschool.us/store. You can find PSMLS apparel, phone accessories, magnets, stickers, pins, office supplies, cups and more there and you can also find the storefront of our sponsor, the Party of Communists USA there as well.
As always, be sure to support our partner publishing house, New Outlook Publishers! They have many books on Marxism-Leninism and contributions from fellow travelers of the communist movement as well. They also have texts compiled and published from commissions and other bodies of the Party of Communists USA, and are putting out the new releases of recently continued works of old like The Communist and New Masses. You can find them at newoutlookpublishers.store and when you purchase from New Outlook Publishers, you support the PCUSA and the PSMLS!
The People’s School needs you!
