West Berliners crowd in front of the Berlin Wall early 11 November 1989 as they watch East German border guards demolishing a section of the wall in order to open a new crossing point between East and West Berlin, near the Potsdamer Square. Two days before, Gunter Schabowski, the East Berlin Communist party boss, declared that starting from midnight, East Germans would be free to leave the country, without permission, at any point along the border, including the crossing-points through the Wall in Berlin. The Berlin concrete wall was built by the East German government in August 1961 to seal off East Berlin from the part of the city occupied by the three main Western powers to prevent mass illegal immigration to the West. According to the "August 13 Association" which specialises in the history of the Berlin Wall, at least 938 people - 255 in Berlin alone - died, shot by East German border guards, attempting to flee to West Berlin or West Germany.

247 - Em discurso por ocasião do 30º aniversário da queda do Muro de Berlim, que assinalou uma espécie de contrarrevolução restauradora do capitalismo no Leste europeu, o secretário de Estado norte-americano, Mike Pompeo referiu-se a supostas ameaças advindas da Rússia e China. 

"As nações ocidentais livres têm a responsabilidade de impedir ameaças a nossas populações de governos como China, Rússia e Irã", afirmou Pompeo, que discursou a poucos metros de onde ficava o Muro de Berlim, no emblemático Portão de Brandeburgo, informa a AFP.

Os Estados Unidos e seus aliados devem "defender o que foi conquistado com tanto custo... em 1989 e reconhecer que estamos em uma competição de valores com as nações que não são livres", acrescentou.
