Students Demand Freedom 1989

14 December 1989. Students in the Bulgarian capital Sofia call for the abolition of Article 1 of the Constitution of the country. It would mean dropping the ruling role of the Communist Party across society.

The political establishment -- both the Communists and cooperative dissidents -- is shocked, they call the students extremists.

It's the beginning of the end of Communist rule in Bulgaria that has lasted 45 years.

From Studenti, 1990
