30 years ago today, in 1989, just eight days after the fall of the Berlin Wall, a student protest against communist rule was violently put down in Prague. And this was the beginning of the end for Communist Czechoslovakia. The Velvet Revolution, in photos:
This spot in the Berlin Zoo was once the site of an enormous #WW2 Flak Tower. With 8x128mm guns with 2.5m thick walls, it was basically impenetrable during the Battle for Berlin. It took 35 tonnes of dynamite to eventually destroy it in 1947. Today it's a hippo enclosure.
30y since the #VelvetRevolution that brought to the end Communist rule in former Czechoslovakia &, like the Baltic Way & Fall of the Berlin Wall, teared down Iron Curtain & started remarkable changes in Central Eastern Europe. My congrats to🇨🇿🇸🇰Allies, for your freedom & ours!

A good day! Spent 5 minutes in AP Spanish w/ Sra. Rodriguez & felt immediately happy. Then I bumped into Elliot carrying some “bricks” for the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall at the end of the Cold War. Each brick decorated w/ symbols of freedom & democracy. pic.twitter.com/iyWUFzzxlN
Germans celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall & the emancipation of part of Germany from the Russian Empire. At the same time, political elites in Germany appease Russian aggression & the reimposition of the Russian Empire over part of Ukraine. German hypocrisy corrupts Europe.
As we look back on 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the triumph of America’s bipartisan policy of opposing Russian aggression, it is extra special to wish Happy Birthday to the “first to fight for right and freedom,” the United States Marines. #MarineCorpsBirthday
30 years ago the Berlin Wall fell. A triumph of liberty over autocracy. But the reunification of Germany cannot be an end point.We need a more ambitious Germany in a more ambitious Europe. That’s why I endorse @EmmanuelMacron’s call for an EU defense force https://www.facebook.com/99985820015/posts/10158073685865016?vh=e&d=n&sfns=mo …
