Caption: Statue of Karl Marx (1818-1883). Statue of the German political theorist philosopher revolutionary and socialist Karl Heinrich Marx, Chisinau, Moldova. Marx's work formed the basis for socialist and communist thinking that inspired revolution across Europe in the following decades. He, along with Friedrich Engels, wrote 'The Communist Manifesto' (1848), which outlined their theories of class struggle and the revolutionary role of the proletariat. Its publications led to Marx being expelled from Brussels, where he had been living, and he settled in London in 1849. This statue once had pride of place in the centre of the city however, it now resides next to a matching one of Engels in the carpark of the city's Moldexpo exhibition area.
