Ukrainian Community Take To The Streets In Coventry

with one comment

Members of Coventry’s Ukrainian community took to the streets yesterday evening in support of #euromaidan #євромайдан.  As demonstrations had been taking place all over the world Ukrainians here in Coventry wanted to do their bit for the cause.  I managed to get along and grab a few shots for the local paper which I’m hoping they manage to use later this week.

Images from this protest in Coventry have already travelled around the world via social media networks.  Peter Luczka from the AUGB in Coventry emailed earlier and confirmed that an acknowledgment from those on Euromaidan in Ukraine had been received thanking people for the support & confirming the encouragement its giving them!

Latest news coming through is that protestors in Ukraine are planning to build a human chain from Kyiv to Poland.  Rather than dwindling away as some people thought, this protest seems to be growing and picking up speed.
