In 1989 during the velvet revolution in Czechoslovakia people were shaking their keys on demonstration as a kind of nonviolent protest against communist party. The demonstration was aired around the globe and the term "shaking key" become a symbol of the Velvet Revolution. Soviet union lost its power and Czech people gained their freedom. Happy End? Not really. Nowadays 30 years after the revolution, the future doesn't look that great. National industry is being cheaply sold abroad and then shut down by new owners. Middle class is poorer every year and the people are looking for a man behind their crappy mood. People are therefore radicalizing as the level of frustration is rising...
That's why we are shaking keys once again, but today with different message: Keys are shaking from apprehension of loosing our freedom they gave us 30 years ago.
