      Bio: Zbigniew Bujak was a leader in the formation of Solidarity, the Polish opposition movement to Communism in the 1980s.  He avoided arrest for over four years during martial law and ended up as part of the Solidarity negotiating team at Round Table talks that led to the peaceful end of Communism in 1989. He was later a political leader and government official during the transition to democracy.  Since 2004, he has applied his knowledge and observations to the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Egypt.
