Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Excellent and stirring account, Marek, thanks.

I'd forgotten about the student/worker split, by which I mean I'd forgotten it existed in Poland too.

I was wondering if it might have served to hasten the decline of the Party if the students had joined in? But then, perhaps the fact that this was a revolt of the Party's (supposed) base of heavy industrial workers made the movement so exemplary. A paradigm of the approaching fall of Communism.
