The Popular Front of Estonia (Estonian: Rahvarinne) - initially introduced to the public by Estonian politician Edgar Savisaar as the "Popular Front for the Support of Perestroika" - a name soon discarded - was a political organization in Estonia in late 1980s and early 1990s. It was to a substantial degree the precursor to the current Estonian Centre Party, although with a much broader base of popularity at the beginning. It was a major force in the Estonian independence movement that led to the re-establishment of the Republic of Estonia as a country independent from the Soviet Union. It was similar to the Popular Front of Latvia and the S?j?dis movement in Lithuania and a number of Popular Fronts that were created almost simultaneously in many parts of the USSR.
