California Republican Party Commemorates 20th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall and President Ronald Reagan’s Leadership
State Republican Party today releases video marking historic event
SACRAMENTO — Marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the California Republican Party released a new video highlighting President Ronald Reagan’s key role in leading America to victory in the Cold War.
Republican organizations will commemorate the importance of the anniversary with special events, house parties and other functions throughout the state today and California Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring issued the following statement:
“Twenty years ago today, the Berlin Wall was consigned to irrelevance because a Californian named Ronald Reagan demonstrated the leadership, commitment and perseverance necessary for liberty to triumph over tyranny.
“Millions of people ultimately contributed to victory in the struggle for freedom, and their efforts culminated on that evening two decades ago as the darkest scar on the map of Europe was suddenly rendered meaningless.
“Today, hundreds of millions of people in the former Soviet bloc are free – to travel, to live where they wish, to pursue their dreams. Having experienced firsthand life under tyranny, it should be no surprise that the democratic governments of many of those former Soviet satellite states are today among America’s strongest allies in the ongoing cause of freedom.
“The legacy of California’s 33rd governor, and America’s 40th President, lives on today in the lives of people around the world and the free societies they continue to build.
The California Republican Party released a new video marking today’s anniversary. The video will be shown at events around the state today and on the state party’s YouTube Channel, CRPTV.
