For Immediate Release

MIAMI-Today Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart made the following statement on the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall:

“Today history remembers those who stood on the side of democracy.  The fall of the Berlin Wall symbolized the end of oppression and the beginning of freedom, democracy and liberty for Eastern Europe.  It also serves as a sign of hope for those around the world that continue to fight the reigns of communism and oppression and seek to one day live in freedom.  We must not forget them and their struggle, and we should never forget the sacrifice and courage of those who brought freedom to Eastern Europe, including our own President Ronald Reagan.”
