Narodni street during the 28th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution in Prague, Czech Republic, 17 November 2017. The Czech Republic marked the 28th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution commemorating the events of 17 November 1989, when hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of Prague and other cities across what was then still communist Czechoslovakia to demand political reforms and greater freedoms. After the brutal suppression of a student demonstration, the communist leadership soon crumbled and the playwright and human rights activist Vaclav Havel became president shortly thereafter.
