79 years since the death of revolutionary socialist Leon Trotsky

Leon Trotsky and American comrades in the 1930s

On 21 August 1940, Leon Trotsky, the Marxist thinker and fighter, and co-leader of the Russian Revolution (along with Lenin), was murdered by one of Stalin’s agents.
The article ‘Trotsky’s Assassination’ originally appeared in the quarterly theoretical magazine of the Militant (now the Socialist Party – England and Wales section of the CWI), in 1980.
The article can be read here on our sister website http://www.marxist.net/trotsky/life/life.htm
