The pictures are in order of importance The Iron Curtain
Comes Down The Velvet Revolution The Romanian Revolution Summary The Velvet Revolution was a non violent revolution used to protest against one-party government of the Communists party of Czechoslovakia. It went on from November 17 to December 29th in 1989. Solidarity was a movement by workers in communist Poland. It took place during the 1980's.

The Romanian Revolution was a series of protests and riots in December of 1989. It marked the end of the Communist regime of Nicolae Ceauescu.
