Today marks the 69th anniversary of the assassination of Leon Trotsky. Murdered by the cowardly hands of Stalin's henchman, Trotsky's ideas remain as relevant today as ever. We mark this anniversary by reproducing a statement issued by Estevan Volkov, Trotsky's grandson, ten years ago. In doing so we remember the final words from Trotsky's testament: "Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence and enjoy it to the full."
