History shows us how it was done before...

In the Ukraine they used mirrors to show the shock troops what they looked like:

In Slovenia: This is what the tanks are for...

Rumble — By the late 80's, Slovenes were tired of communism.

They voted in winter of 1990. Overwhelming victory, 95% against communism. However, even that was not enough.

Words were not enough, so they needed to fight for their freedom. The war started in summer of 1991.

All the people played their part. From children to retired.

Protests, barricades, active fighting, all over the country.

Superior federal army was stunned by the defiance, honor and bravery of Slovenian people. Their morale crumbled in matter of days.

Ten days later, Slovenia was free.

Also the Example of Romania:

I found it uplifting to see how sudden and unexpected the tipping point can be.

"(WIKIPEDIA) - On the morning of 21 Dec 1989, Ceaușescu addressed an assembly of approximately 100,000 people to condemn the uprising in Timișoara.

Party officials took great pains to make it appear that Ceaușescu was still immensely popular. Several busloads of workers, under threat of being fired, arrived in Bucharest's Piața Palatului (Palace Square, now known as Piața Revoluției – Revolution Square) and were given red flags, banners and large pictures of Ceaușescu. They were augmented by bystanders who were rounded up on Calea Victoriei.

The speech was typical of most of Ceaușescu's speeches over the years. Making liberal use of Marxist-Leninist rhetoric, he delivered a litany of the achievements of the "socialist revolution" and Romanian "multi-laterally developed socialist society".

He blamed the Timișoara uprising on "fascist agitators". However, Ceaușescu was out of touch with his people and completely misread the crowd's mood.

The people remained unresponsive, and only the front rows supported Ceaușescu with cheers and applause.

About two minutes into the speech, some in the crowd actually began to jeer, boo, whistle and yell insults at him, a reaction unthinkable for most of his rule.

Workers from a Bucharest power plant started chanting "Ti-mi-șoa-ra! Ti-mi-șoa-ra!", which was soon picked up by others in the crowd.

In response, Ceaușescu raised his right hand in hopes of silencing the crowd; his stunned expression remains one of the defining moments of the end of Communism in Eastern Europe.

He then tried to placate the crowd by offering to raise workers' salaries by 200 lei per month (about 9 U.S. dollars at the time, yet a 5%–10% raise for a modest salary) and student scholarships from 100 to 110 lei while continuing to praise the achievements of the Socialist Revolution. However, a revolution was brewing right in front of his eyes.

As Ceaușescu was addressing the crowd from the balcony of the Central Committee building, sudden movement came from the outskirts of the massed assembly, as did the sound of (what various sources have reported as) fireworks, bombs or guns, which together caused the assembly to break into chaos.

Initially frightened, the crowds tried to disperse. Bullhorns then began to spread the news that the much feared Securitate was firing on the crowd and that a "revolution" was unfolding. This persuaded people in the assembly to join in. The rally turned into a protest demonstration.

The entire speech was being broadcast live nationwide. Censors attempted to cut the live video feed and replace it with Communist propaganda songs and video praising the Ceaușescu regime, but parts of the riots had already been broadcast and most of the Romanian people realised that something unusual was in progress. Ceaușescu and his wife, as well as other officials and CPEx members, panicked; Ceaușescu's bodyguard hustled him back inside the building.

The jeers and whistles soon erupted into a riot; the crowd took to the streets, placing the capital, like Timișoara, in turmoil. Members of the crowd spontaneously began shouting anti-Ceaușescu slogans, which spread and became chants: "Jos dictatorul!" ("Down with the dictator"), "Moarte criminalului!" ("Death to the criminal"), "Noi suntem poporul, jos cu dictatorul!" ("We are the People, down with the dictator"), "Ceaușescu cine ești?/Criminal din Scornicești" ("Ceaușescu, who are you? A criminal from Scornicești").

Protesters eventually flooded the city centre area, from Piața Kogălniceanu to Piața Unirii, Piața Rosetti and Piața Romană.

In one notable scene from the event, a young man waved a tricolour with the Communist coat of arms torn out of its centre while perched on the statue of Mihai Viteazul on Boulevard Mihail Cogălniceanu in the University Square.

Many others began to emulate the young protester, and the waving and displaying of the Romanian flag with the Communist insignia cut out quickly became widespread.


Movement for Socialism (MAS) party officials announced the original “supreme decrees” 4640 and 4641 on Dec. 28, 2021, which triggered nationwide protests and legal backlash in the Bolivian cities of Santa Cruz, La Paz, Cochabamba, El Alto, and Sucre.

“Indigenous people [in Bolivia] have always been distrustful of Western medical initiatives,” attorney Alejandro Gutierrez told The Epoch Times.

Gutierrez said people who opposed the vaccine mandates were citing article 44 of the nation’s constitution, which protects against scientific or medical experimentation without consent, as grounds for the dismissal of the decrees.

On Jan. 17, protesters established road blockades leading from the city of El Alto into the capital La Paz. Rudy Callisaya, head of the rural magisterium in La Paz, said the roadblocks would stay in place in 20 provinces in La Paz Department until the government agreed to dismiss the vaccine decrees. The roads that Callisaya pledged to impede with other protesters are a vital part of the supply chain allowing food and essential goods to arrive in La Paz.

The city draws the majority of its goods from the vast Bolivian countryside.

Solidarity protests held against the decrees in Cochabamba on Jan. 18 were met with an aggressive police response. Opposition to the vaccine mandates led to the establishment of road blockades at key points along Petrolera Avenue and other areas in the southern part of the city. Police arrived in the afternoon and removed the blocks while firing tear gas at the unarmed dissenters.

Later that evening, the demonstrators returned in larger numbers and rebuilt the road barriers.

On Jan. 19, after 48 hours of an intense stand-off with civilians opposed to the mandates, the government agreed to cancel the orders requiring proof of vaccination. Auza said the government made the decision in order “to preserve the safety of the population against certain groups who don’t accept vaccination.”
