International Black Ribbon Day

Did you know that today is Black Ribbon Day?  Last year our Parliament voted unanimously to commemorate this day to the memories of the millions that died under Communism and National Socialism. 

August 23rd was picked specifically as the anniversary of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.  The most evil governments in history decided to officially cooperate with the signing of this pact.  They then proceeded to invade Poland and Finland together.  They both proceeded to invade other countries until finally the Nazis decided to invade the Soviet Union. 

When both of these vile Governments ceased to exist tens of millions of innocent people were dead and millions more had died to stop them. 

Remember the pact between these evil states and the harm their ideology caused.
