don’t think about singing when they think about revolution. But song was the
weapon of choice when Estonians sought to free themselves from decades of
Soviet occupation. The Singing Revolution is an inspiring account of one
nation’s dramatic rebirth. It is the story of humankind’s irrepressible drive
for freedom and self-determination.
Singing Revolution shares how, between 1987 and 1991, hundreds of thousands of
Estonians gathered publicly to sing forbidden patriotic songs and share protest
speeches, risking their lives to proclaim their desire for independence. While
violence and bloodshed was the unfortunate end result in other occupied nations
of the USSR, the revolutionary songs of the Estonians anchored their struggle
for freedom, which was ultimately accomplished without the loss of a single
life. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
