  • Candle Manifestation
    type: anniversary    location: Slovakia

    The Candle Manifestation (or Bratislava Good Friday) was a peaceful display of citizens demonstrating for religious freedom and civic rights in socialist Czechoslovakia that took place at Hviezdoslav Square in Bratislava on March 25, 1988. Security forces brutally attacked peacefully manifesting citizens and they were dispersed. It was one of the most significant protests of citizens and churchgoers against the Communist regime in former Czechoslovakia.
