The Right To Rise!

I hope you are aware of what is happening in Ukraine currently. A country is rising up against tyranny, inhumane treatment, and a president determined to silence the voice of his people.

Matters escalated when president Viktor Yanukovych pulled out of a free trade deal with the EU in favour of closer ties with Russia. When the people voiced their objections, Yanukovych illegally introduced laws that violated basic human rights. Simply put, the laws directly removed freedom of speech and freedom of association from the people of Ukraine. This was a step too far and the people have since bravely risen up … yet they continue to be brutalized by their government.

Here is a Facebook page, to keep you up to date via Social Media: Euromaidan in English.
Also, watch this video from the page and find a way to show your support as fellow world citizens.

“Liberty and good government do not exclude each other; and there are excellent reasons why they should go together. Liberty is not a means to a higher political end. It is itself the highest political end.”
~ Lord Acton
