Discussion with participants in protests against the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968

Three of well-known thinkers and movers of the late 1960s – Ágnes Heller, Pavel Litvinov and Mustafa Dzhemilev – will take part in a discussion at the Václav Havel Library on 21 August 2018, starting at 7 p.m. The debate will focus on a comparison of societal changes in 1968 and 2018, particularly in Hungary, the US and Ukraine.

All these guests raised their voices in public protests in countries that had taken part in the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw Pact troops in 1968. For their brave stance, they were persecuted by the ruling communist regimes in their countries.

Chaired by Josef Pazderka.

The discussion will be held in Czech with interpretation into English and Russian.
