Charta 77: 30 Years Later

Charta 77 was a grass-roots group of Czechs, united in their desire to see the Czech government grant its citizens the human rights that were guaranteed by the Helsinki Final Act, the Czech Constitution, and other agreements that Czechoslovakia had signed. Charta 77 was a bolt from the blue in the otherwise stagnant political atmosphere of Czechoslovakia. Together with movements for human and civil rights in other countries of the Soviet bloc, Charta 77 became a vital factor working from below in the Helsinki process and towards the democratic revolutions of 1989. Through a discussion on the Charta 77 the organizers wish to call attention to the consequences that the events stemming from the Helsinki Final Act brought about for the coming generations and to highlight the tremendous turmoil that took place in Europe since then.
