Hundreds of delegates of the Taras Shevchenko Ukrainian Language Society conference took part in grandiose demonstrations on September 30 and October 1, 1990 in Kyiv, which turned into the famous hunger strike of Ukrainian students on Independence Square and forced the Verkhovna Rada of the Ukrainian SSR to make some concessions to the national democratic forces . It was primarily about the resignation of the then Prime Minister V. Masol and opposition to the attempt to impose the so-called "union treaty" on Ukraine. The student graduates of this revolution will be an active part of the Ukrainian national politics of the 1990s-2000s-2010s. See Student revolution on granite
