The following contribution of the Class War Group is neither a chronology of events in Czechoslovakia, 1989, nor a description of them.

In the same way as ten years ago, the Czech bourgeoisie today, on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the “Velvet Revolution”, commemorates its victorious struggle for “freedom and democracy”, its triumphant campaign against the proletariat.

Our aim was, in other words to appropriate all points and levels, which represent a then classist militants´ rupture with capitalism and an affirmation and development of our class´ historical programme.
Proletarian struggle, it is not just Greece in December 2008, even if, at least in the Euro-Atlantic space, this rebellion is, by its depth and scope of its conscious as well as unconscious social critique, the furthest reaching expression of our class in the last several decades.
