20 years since the Romanian revolution. Timisoara 17 Dcember 1989, the first incidents

Mourning day in the city of Timisoara where the people comemorate 20 years since the beginning of the Romanian revolution. The flags were lowered marking the darkest day in citizens mind. On 17 December 1989, Timisoara raised against the dictatorial regime lead by Nicolae Ceausescu. It was a courageous act paid with many sacrifices by the young ranks. Following the revolt in Timisoara, the revolution extended in the whole country leading in the end to the fall of Ceausescu who was executed at Christmas that year (25 Dec 1989). The Romanian Revolution was probably the blodiest among the East European uprisings.
