Abstract

Poland celebrated 25th anniversary of the founding of the “Solidarity” trade union. The birth of the “Solidarity” in a Polish shipyard 25 years ago represented a resounding victory of freedom over the communism. The anniversary celebrations had brought together several European leaders as well as 30 prime ministers and deputy prime ministers of central and eastern European countries. Among foreign leaders that attend were the head of EU Commission Jose Manuel Baroso and German President Horst Koehler. The founding of “Solidarity” movement is now seen as the beginning of the end of the communist rule in Europe. On August 14 1980, Lech Walesa, a labor activist scaled the gates of the “Lenin” shipyard in Gdansk and called for workers there to strike. The workers set down their tools for two weeks and a committee led by Walesa negotiated with the communist government, on August 31, 1980 that provided “Solidarity” with the right to create an independent labor movement. This led to peaceful fall of communism in Poland. Within months of its establishment “Solidarity” had become a national political movement claiming 10 million members. The “Solidarity” movement and Lech Walesa, the former president of Poland, Nobel peace price winner and the founder of “Solidarity” trade union, had played a key role in the collapse of communism.
