On #ThisDayinHistory 1989, a group of Prague students sparked what became known as the Velvet Revolution: Students gathered in for a peaceful demonstration to commemorate and mark the 50th anniversary of a protestor’s death in a student demonstration against the Nazi occupation #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.17: Unfortunately, their protest that day ended with riot police severely beating the demonstrators: Of course, what they didn’t know was that their protest would trigger the events which would essentially end the rule of communism in the country 10 days later #AceNewsDesk reports

The protest on the 17th triggered a veritable onslaught of popular protests, held almost daily in Czech and Slovak cities culminating in the appointment of the country’s first non-communist government in more than 40 years and the election of Vaclav Havel, a playwright turned dissident as president……..This non-violent transition of power earned the “Velvet Revolution” moniker primarily for its peaceful nature – not a single life was lost during the process. #VelvetRevolution #Prague #VaclavHavel #lavieboheme #AceHistoryDesk reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
