    Interesting history, indeed. From Wikipedia:

    "..at the height of its power the Soviet Union established a nationwide subbotnik to be celebrated on Lenin's birthday, April 22, which had been proclaimed a national holiday celebrating communism by Nikita Khrushchev in 1955."

    I believe I'll pass on this particular event.

    Huh? I don't think that has anything to do with Earth Day- it just coincidentally falls on the same date. This has nothing to do with Lenin, communism, or the Soviet Union, and everything to do with the one planet we all live on.

    Terry Gilliam warned us about international communism a long time ago.
