The Singing Revolution: The perfect gift this Christmas for your favourite anti-communist

I’ve written about The Singing Revolution here and here.

It’s a documentary about the amazing story of how the Estonian people overthrew Soviet occupation and sang their way to freedom in the form of mass, peaceful, public civil disobedience. They literally sang on mass in the public square in defiance of Soviet rule.

The documentary is as powerful a portrayal of the effectiveness of passive resistance as I’ve seen on screen since Boycott, the story of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott that sparked the civil rights movement and put Martin Luther King in the national spotlight. (There are probably better examples than Boycott, but not that I’ve seen.)

The Singing Revolution is the perfect gift this Christmas for your favourite anti-communist, and the Western Standard gets a piece of the action if you come through our website on your way to Amazon.com.
