President's Visit to Eastern Europe and Russia: Nov. 19-23, 2002
Standing with Romanian President Iliescu, President George W. Bush waves to thousands of Romanians in Revolution Square in Bucharest, Romania, Nov. 23, 2002. The square is the site of the 1989 revolt that toppled communist rule and where the Romanian people denounced the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. "And here, in December of 1989, you broke the silence of your captivity," remarked President Bush. "From that balcony, the dictator heard your voices and faltered -- and fled. Two generations of bitter tyranny ended, and all the world witnessed the courage of Romania, the courage that set you free."
