The fight

This memorial plate on A.Briana street in Riga says that "here in this house an illegal printing house was publishing the communist party's newspaper Cīņa (The Fight)". The plate dates back to Soviet times as in context of today's political conjuncture such fact is of no significance. All political parties, including the communist party, were banned during the president's K.Ulmanis dictatorship between 1934 and 1940.
