A month later, EuroMaidan beat goes on

Written by on December 22, 2013 in Europe - No comments

A month ago, on November 21, people took to the streets in protest against the government’s decision to abandon a far-reaching political and trade agreement with the European Union. On December 21, EuroMaidan demonstrators marked their “little victory” – as they called it – in enduring police brutality and cold weather to keep up the vigil for democracy and against President Viktor Yanukovych.

Day and night, people come and go, with hard-core protesters camping out overnight. Crowds range from several hundred to several hundred thousand people during the big Sunday rallies. A fifth consecutive Sunday rally is planned for December 22.
