Background The Baltic Way was a peaceful demonstration that occurred on August 23, 1989. Approximately two million people formed a human chain spanning over 600 kilometres across the three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia and
Lithuanian - republics of the Soviet Union at this time). It marked the 50th anniversary of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. This demonstration was one of the longest unbroken human
chains in history. The human chain helped to publicise the Baltic cause around the world and was a step to the independance of the baltic states.
