Ecuador - Guayaquil's Independence Day from Spain (1820)
They had to gain independence from opression, fuck me.
John Lennon, of the Beatles, was born in Liverpool, England (1940 )
Yeah, and some asshole shot him some years back, ending the life of the only Beatle that had any talent....
Other musicians born on this day: John Entwistle, Bass player, The Who and Jamaica's Peter Tosh (1944); Jackson Browne, American singer songwriter (1948)
Are Tosh and Entwistle still alive? I seriously don't know... Anyways, Jackson Browne sucks.
Uganda, independent from Britain, became a republic (1962)
Refer to the story about 1820.
70,000 protesters march in Leipzig to demand the legalization of opposition groups and democratic reforms in East Germany (1989)
This probably ended in a riot.....
Democratic elections in Afghanistan held for the first time (2004)
Again, only a celebration of getting away from years of opression, poverty, probably torture, etc, etc....
