Children of the Solidarity revolution
16-Apr-2009 (one comment)

The first democratic elections in the Soviet bloc resulted in the eventual collapse of the communist regime - but for most of the 1980s, Solidarity had been an illegal organisation whose members faced a constant risk of arrest.

Lets hope Iran will experience the same type of "solidarity revolution" against the communist version of fundamentalist there.
