"Obcanske Forum"

Obscanske Forum with Havel and Dubcek

Havel and Dubcek stood on behalf of the Civic Forum on November 26th, addressing the crowds. 

On November 26th, Alexander Dubcek met with Vaclav Havel and stood in front of a crowd of protestors. This was the first time that the government made an effort to speak with the people, and was one of their largest concessions. 

Dubcek was praised here by the people, who cheered for him. It was noted that he was surprised that the people were so accepting of him, as they remembered his efforts of "socialism with a human face" during the Prague Spring.
