Suggested Amendment

"leave out from 'ago' to end and add 'since when the people of Russia and its subjected territories have been the victims of oppression and relative material deprivation arising from this attempt to implement socialism; and notes the attempt of certain honourable Labour Members to apologise for and excuse the very regime for which they previously expressed comradely friendship.'."

Original Motion Text

That this House notes that the Bolshevik revolution took place 74 years ago, representing the aspirations of Russian workers and peasants; recognises that this important historical event was subsequently betrayed by the Stalinist bureaucracy who executed most of the revolution's original leadership; and, learning the lessons of the Soviet experience, supports oppressed people everywhere who are fighting back against class injustice - especially in Britain.
