    Today 24 years ago almost a 2 million people joined their hands to form an over 600 kilometre long human chain across the three Baltic countries, linking Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in their drive for independence. We protested against occupation under Ribentrop-Molotov pact that happened same day years ago.

    Those coffins symbolised three countries.

    I only remember this as a child as my family was there holding hands and it was time when people where actually united and strong and can't imagine someone like this happening today. We had no internet back then and still people gathered together and believed in same thing.

    It's my definition of peaceful protest and I personally can't buy those peaceful Libyan/Syrian/Egyptian protesters crap.

    Yep it was a very peaceful protest and the way such things should be done. Kudos to them.
