Romanian Revolution 1989

While the Revolution was going on, the Romanian dictator Ceaucescu had an airplane drop a few thousand of the propaganda leaflets. I have kept this one ever since. I had a Romanian National who worked at the embassy translate it for me: "Manifesto, You are on a dangerous road. The chaos and disorder which the enemies of the people are leading you will transform the country into ruin. It's a pity what has been done up to this moment. Don't play the game of the counterrevolutionaries. Stop until it's too late ! " 

I took this just after the shooting had stopped in downtown Bucharest.
