In the late 1960s and early 1970s the opposition movement in Lithuania was primarily formed around the Catholic Church, and it had become one of the most organized and successful dissident group in the Soviet Union. The primary mouthpiece of this movement was the illegally published newspaper Chronicle of the Catholic Church in Lithuania, which positioned itself as the defender of human and national rights, as well as the freedom of religion. The Chronicle grants us insight into the events concerning the Catholic Church in the 1970s and 80s and serves as a historical source. The dissident movement against the Soviet Union in Lithuania was helped by the fact that the country managed to keep its ethnic identity (80% of the population was Lithuanian, and there were no large-scale attempts at colonisation, as opposed to Estonia and Latvia), and also religious homogeneity (Lithuanians were mostly Catholic, while the majority of Latvians and Estonians were Lutherans or Orthodox, and only a minority were Catholics).
