A Singing Revolution

Estonia did not use any violence while occupied with violent approaches by the Soviet Union and Russia. Stalin and Gorbachev had secret plans against Estonia.

They Knew That Patience Was The Key

The Estonians have long been using singing as a major form of protest while under soviet rule for over 50 years. They haven't shed any blood knowing that Gorbachev would've would have sent a tank if they did so. The soviets have demanded the Estonian citizens to stop singing but none of them stopped.

Broadcast Towers

Estonians surrounded the tower in protest to not have it taken away. They threatened to fill it up with a gas that could wipe out the soldiers and everyone. The soldiers were scared of the threat so decided to back off.
