Trotsky participated in the abortive revolution of 1905. In 1917 he returned to Russia with Lenin to lead the revolution.

A site celebrating leon trotsky, aiming to provide an overall view of his ideas and struggles.
The purpose of this web site is to provide an overall view of the ideas and struggles of Leon Trotsky. Trotsky played a leading role, together with Lenin, during the 1917 Russian Revolution. It was Trotsky who organised the Red Army as well as the fightback against all the forces of reaction that were attempting to strangle the revolution in blood. The Revolution Betrayed - a Marxist masterpiece - a review by Alan Woods After the Civil War and the death of Lenin, unfortunately the Soviet Union remained isolated. One revolution after another (Germany 1918, Hungary 1919, Italy 1920 and so on...) was defeated. The economy the Bolsheviks had inherited from Tsarism was extremely underdeveloped. And in isolation from the rest of the world, this meant that the material conditions for a rapid advance towards socialism did not exist. In this situation a bureaucratic counter-revolution took place. A bureaucratic elite raised itself above the working class. Stalin and his regime represented the interests of this bureaucracy. But in order to consolidate their control over society this bureaucracy had to eliminate the genuine traditions of Bolshevism. Thus the struggle between Stalin's faction and the Left Opposition, led by Trotsky, was a struggle between the genuine representatives of the working class and the up-and-coming bureaucratic elite.

Kahlo Lev Davidovich Bronstein ( Trotsky ) in 1897 Lev Davidovich Bronstein (Leon Trotsky) was born on October 26, 1879, son of a hard-working, thrifty, and well-to-do jewish farmer, in the southern part of Ukraine. The family valued education highly, and when Lev was about nine years old they let him move to the city of Odessa, to stay with his 'uncle' and to go to school. This is where Lev developed his nice manners and intellectual personality. Lev was an exeptionally bright and capable student, and in 1896 he moved to Nicolayev to complete his secondary education and to study matematics. This is where Lev turned revolutionary. In 1897 he was instrumental in founding the South Russia Workers Union and in 1898 the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP). However, Lev was arrested for his political activities, put in prison, and in 1900 deported to Siberia. In 1902 he adopted the name Trotsky as he escaped, and met Lenin in London. Trotsky then joined Lenin on the staff of Iskra (The Spark), the Communist newspaper. Trotsky and Lenin, as intellectuals, had much respect for each other, however, in 1903 at the Second Congress of the RSDLP, the Bolsheviks were led by Lenin, while Trotsky was among the Menshevik leaders.

Trotsky's theory of 'permanent revolution' became unpopular after Stalin had gained power in the Soviet Union. Trotsky was assassinated by one of Stalin's agents. Although Trotsky later condemned the Red Terror, he was, perhaps, one of its first proponents. "Things are not going well. The Greek soldiers landed on the shores of Crimea, according to the reports of Allied diplomats and newspapermen, were mounted on Crimean donkeys, but the donkeys were not able to arrive in time at the Perekop Isthmus. Things are not going well. Evidently even donkeys have begun to shake off the imperialistic harness." (from Trotsky's speech on April 1919) After attending a Jewish primary school, Trotsky studied at a state school in Odessa. He was a very good student, who especially loved mathematics, but was expelled for a year when he fell foul of the French teacher. "I can hardly think of a single teacher whom I might remember with affection", he recalled. Trotsky become an ardent disciple of Karl Marx already in his youth. In 1896 Trotsky joined the Social Democrats and two years later he was arrested as a Marxist and exiled to Siberia. Four years later he escaped and reached England by means of a forged passport that used the name of a jailer in Odessa's prison, Trotsky.

Leon Trotsky (1879 - 1940)
A key figure in the Bolshevik seizure of power in Russia in 1917 and the man who built up the Red Army during the subsequent civil war, Trotsky was second only to Lenin in the early stage of Soviet communist rule. But this gifted intellectual lost out to Stalin in the power struggle of the 1920s, was forced into exile and ultimately murdered by an agent of his political nemesis. Born Lev Davidovich Bronshtein and of Jewish origin, Trotsky became involved in underground activities as a teenager. He was soon arrested, jailed and exiled to Siberia. Eventually, he escaped and spent the majority of the next 15 years abroad, including a spell as war correspondent in the Balkans. While Lenin assumed leadership of the Bolshevik faction, Trotsky became a Menshevik and developed his theory of 'permanent revolution'. After the outbreak of revolution in Petrograd in February 1917, he made his way back to Russia. Despite many previous disagreements with Lenin, Trotsky joined the Bolsheviks in August 1917 and played a decisive role in the communist take-over of power the same year. His first post in the new government was as foreign commissar, where he found himself negotiating peace terms with the Germans, before taking over as war commissar. In this capacity, he built up the Red Army which prevailed against the White forces in the Civil War, and thus, Trotsky played a crucial role in keeping the Bolshevik regime alive. He saw himself as Lenin's heir apparent but he was not a team player, his intellectual arrogance made him few friends, and his Jewish background may also have worked against him. When Lenin fell ill and subsequently died, Trotsky was easily outmanoeuvred by Stalin. In 1927, he was thrown out of the party, and internal, then foreign, exile followed.

On a balmy summer evening in August 1940, a young man gained admittance to the study of Leon Trotsky's heavily guarded house near Mexico City. He asked Trotsky to read something he had written. While Trotsky was poring over his article, the visitor removed an alpine climbing axe from his overcoat and sank it into the great thinker's skull. The assassin, who called himself Jacson Mornard, was traveling with a forged Canadian passport and claimed to be in Mexico on business. In reality, he was a Stalinist agent who had been posing as the boyfriend of Trotsky's personal secretary in order to carry out his mission. Joseph Stalin had expelled Trotsky from Russia in 1929 for relentless criticism of his dictatorial regime and its corruption of Marxist ideals. For almost a decade, Trotsky was doomed to wander from country to country - Turkey, France, and Norway - under constant pressure from Stalinist elements. However, he continued speaking out in letters, essays and books, including his Diary in Exile and his monumental three-volume History of the Russian Revolution Finally, in 1936 Trotsky was granted asylum in Mexico and settled in Coyoacán on the outskirts of Mexico City. At the time, Mexico had a strong Communist party, but it, too, was divided into volatile Stalinist and anti-Stalinist factions. In the middle of this political hotbed, the aging revolutionary and his wife of many years, Natalia Sedova, established their first real home since leaving the Soviet Union.

His writings of the period 1930-40 provide us with a veritable treasure-house of Marxist theory, dealing not only with the immediate problems of the international labour movement (the Chinese revolution, the rise of Hitler in Germany, the Spanish Civil War), but of all manner of artistic, philosophical and cultural questions.

In spite of all this, all the efforts of the terrorists led to nothing. Far from strengthening the mass movement, the acts of terrorism had the opposite effect of strengthening the repressive apparatus of the state, isolating and demoralising the revolutionary cadres and, in the end, leading to the complete destruction of the Narodnaya Volya Trotsky and Iskra Iskra , which played the key role in organising and uniting the genuine Marxist tendency. All the work of producing and distributing the paper and maintaining a voluminous correspondence with Russia was carried out by Lenin and his indefatigable companion Nadyezhda Krupskaya.
