                Proclamation 8202 of November 8, 2007

                
World Freedom Day, 2007

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                On World Freedom Day, we commemorate the fall of the 
                Berlin Wall and reaffirm our conviction that freedom is 
                the inalienable right of every man, woman, and child.

                On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell--a triumph of 
                freedom over those who denied hope and opportunity to 
                millions. The collapse of this barrier signaled the 
                demise of the Soviet empire and ushered in a new era of 
                liberty for much of Central and Eastern Europe. In the 
                end, tyranny was overpowered by ordinary people who 
                wanted to live their lives freely, worship God freely, 
                and speak the truth to their children. With moral 
                clarity and courage, brave individuals can change the 
                course of history.

                Our Nation remains committed to the advance of freedom 
                and democracy as the great alternatives to repression 
                and radicalism. America calls on every country that 
                stifles dissent to end its repression, to trust its 
                people, and to grant its citizens the liberty they 
                deserve.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim November 9, 2007, as World 
                Freedom Day. I call upon the people of the United 
                States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies 
                and activities, reaffirming our dedication to freedom 
                and democracy.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                eighth day of November, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand seven, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and thirty-second. 
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)
