Tear Down This Wall: The resistance

Seven thousand in Columbus of wires watchtowers walls fences minefields and sentry posts stretching from the Arctic Tundra Finland to the Black Sea coast of Greece. This old dedicated to preventing captive people's from fleeing somewhere they might speak think and vote freely. Nevertheless there was resistance courageous inventive and surprisingly rarely violent it took foams as different as the imprison nations of Eastern Europe would different in this third episode of the foreign discs series reflecting on the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We look at Poland where the regime Asia was confronted by a trade union and joined by Pope the country then known as Czechoslovakia where revolution was led by poets playwrights and rockstars and Romania the only one of eastern Europe's liberation struggles of nineteen thousand nine to descend into bloodshed. This is the foreign desk. My impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was going to happen as they were going to get way because there was nothing credible calm about the way people are going about the strike. There there was no panic. There was no drinking no rushing around people were just waiting for the government to give in and the government did get enough to series of public negotiation. I mean we knew something something was going on but we still wear not sat in that be able to live to see the end all the system. We knew Tom Unsustainable in the long run but most of our perspective close sustainable for longer than our lives about the thing about people on television television or a heads of the secret believes in the army and they were giving contradictory instructions to people in the field but there was fighting on on the streets. Nobody knew who was on whose side and the sea turns out of course neither there or no sides there was a single side and the churches were along and they had no loyal troops in August. One thousand nine hundred eighty a group of workers at the Lenin shipyards in Gdansk went Own Strike they called their fledgling trade union solidarity and hoisted a Groovy flag based on Poland's national banner with the Solidarity Name emblazoned in red on the White Stripe in cheerful friendly font within a year of its foundation solidarity had ten million members within within a decade. It had the country a few weeks after the Berlin Wall fell solidarity leader Falesa an electrician by trade was elected. President President of Poland Kristof Bobbin. Ski Is the President of Union and Polska a pro European think tank in Wausau. He's also the former Warsaw correspondent Brandin of the Financial Times. He picks up the story in Gdansk. In the summer of nineteen eighteen to strike in the shipyard had two phases one was a phase which which went from about this Thursday to the Saturday afternoon when the shipyard authorities the management gave into the demands and tell people go home that he said we've we've got the money or go home and at that point it was. The younger workers also led by young dissidents. I suppose who went round the ship out saying don't go home. The strike is not over people out there in the restive discuss still on strike. They were driving around in this small electric electric trucks telling the people not to go home and a lot of people go home but enough state from the Saturday afternoon and I arrived on the Saturday Saturday afternoon and I saw young people saving shy making it continue into the Sunday. On the Sunday people started coming back on the Monday morning people came back and strike got underway big strike on underway. So actually I had the impression that it was actually a young people's movement at that moment it was saved by the young people by the shipyard workers wasn't quite solidarity then because it was formed as it were off the strikes extended but my impression of the strike in the Lenin shipyard was that this was gonna happen this they were going to get their way because it was incredible calmness about the way people we're going about the strike. That was no panic. There was no drinking. There was no rushing around people. Were just waiting for the government to give it and the government did give enough to series the public negotiations and is the reason for those public negotiations were a certain number of Social demands pay demands but also the the main demand with for this supplements of independent unions

March Madness: Britain Leaving The EU
"And that means that March twenty ninth Britain's deadline to leave. The European Union is only a few short weeks away, Brexit Brexit. In fact, there is another vote tomorrow on Theresa May's plans leave the EU and with a deadline, so close the idea of a hard Brexit is becoming much more of a reality a hard Brexit for those who don't know what that is. That is the scenario where Britain leaves the EU with no deal in place. No clear. Transition plan. No new rules to govern trading relationships. They just leave. And of course, are trying to make predictions about what would happen in the scenario, which is hard because it's difficult to predict what's going to happen on doomsday. Exactly, no one has any idea. What's going to go on? And that's the thing. The reason they're having trouble with it is that there's no precedent. No one knows. It's going to happen with Brexit because nothing like Brexit has ever happened before or has it that assumption that this hasn't happened before may not be entirely true. I'm Patty Hirsch. And I'm even Brooks today on the show. We're going back in time and halfway around the world will explore Brexit precedent in the most unlikely places and see what we can learn from it.

The last time we talked to Brexit on the show was in December about a month after that Prime Minister Theresa may finally brought her plan to parliament, which you just heard for a vote the is to the right two hundred to the nose to the left full hundred and thirty two. Wow. That is the sound of defeat this rejection. And the fact that we're only weeks weeks away from a deadline makes a hard Brexit. Look, more and more likely the British government is very aware of the scary possibility, and they published a few economic reports in the subject, but the thing is the reports focus almost exclusively on the long term, which is kinda strange because the threat of a major economic problems in the short term is very real very real. Because as part of the EU the UK is bind to the rest of Europe through this intricate network of business and trading relationships that are developed over more than half a century. Those relationships are based on rules. And if you throw the rules out overnight you jeopardize the relationships. So I wanted to figure out why communists aren't taking a closer look at that short term effect. So I spoke to Peter Morell. He's a professor of economics at the university of Maryland economics. I think is a wonderful science, but it has its limitations. Means economics is really attuned to studying situations way. People are not in dissect quit Librium not reacting to circumstances. They had not into separated, you know, a communist never deal with this cutting o of of rules and cutting off of the possibility of trading on their existing relationships costs. It doesn't happen very often. You have to look for analogous situations. And that's the whole point of the checkers of accurate example that there are very few analogous situations. And that is one of them, and it was very dramatic. The Czechoslovakia example, you see Peter spent years of his career studying eastern European economies. So when Brexit started to pick up steam Peterson parallels with Czechoslovakia, it was a country that most people regarded was one of the bet of run social. A-list eastern European countries in many ways, they will God as the country that was most prepared to accomplish this mammoth task that mammoth task started in nineteen eighty nine with the fall of the Soviet Union Czechoslovakia has a peaceful revolution. And as a first order of business needs to instate some serious economic reforms. They need to dismantle the rules that govern their plan to Konami and replace them with market capitalist rules scrap one set of existing trading relationships and replace them with another. They were preparing really by destroying figuring out higher. They were going to destroy the existing institutions here. We can draw first parallel with Brexit Czecholsovakia had to remove it self from complex economic system and Britain has to do the same thing. Brexit is about destroying set of rules that had been relevant to the British economy for a long time. Time. But while it's been almost three years since the Brexit decision Czechoslovakia only had about one year. And at first things are actually looking pretty good. The economy was extremely buoyant in nineteen ninety industrial production increased over the year by a considerable amount. Retail sales were extremely buoyant rising by as much as thirty percent over the year. So after a very good economic year finally came the big day January first nineteen ninety one the day Czecholsovakia switched to a market capitalist economy, literally overnight changing this system, so Czechoslovakia walk side of the Soviet Union. No plan, no deals just an account resist this checks, it what happens a huge collapse in economic output. So we have an economy that entered a era of precipitous. Collapsed even in a country that was extremely well prepared and extremely well run. And of course, Czechoslovakia's woes did not end their the economic problems brought about a revival of tensions within the country and two years later, they separated into the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, and they're it's sort of interesting to think of England and Scotland right because in the Brexit referendum. Scotland voted very very strongly to remain in the EU sixty two percent allied margin voted to remain. So the thinking is if a hard Brexit causes economic problems in the UK Scotland might hold another referendum on independence. Then vote to rejoin the EU which is possible, I suppose, but I'll have to say I feel like we're getting head of ourselves here is it really appropriate to compare Brexit with checks it. I'm just gonna keep going the UK, right? As a modern international. I would looking at Konami tech as lavar Kia was essentially planned walled off Soviet economy there too. Very different
