The government of Ukraine wants to join Russia instead of the EU, but that's not what the opposition and most of the ppl wants because.. well, it's Russia. So it started with manifestations untill the cops went USSR-style and start to get mental. And now they've also accepted a rule where all manifestations are banned and now the ppl are mad as fuck, so they provoking the government.

With other words, those guys are the heroes that every democracy needs, but doesn't want. To put it in Nolan's words.

Indeed, funny how when they're reporting on America's involvement in the Middle East they only speak the Sheeple-awakening truth.

I wish I had another source than vice, but..
http://motherboard.vice.com/en_ca/blog/ ... -ever-sent
Maybe the Most Orwellian Text Message a Government's Ever Sent

“Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance.”

That's a text message that thousands of Ukrainian protesters spontaneously received on their cell phones today, as a new law prohibiting public demonstrations went into effect. It was the regime's police force, sending protesters the perfectly dystopian text message to accompany the newly minted, perfectly dystopian legislation. In fact, it's downright Orwellian (and I hate that adjective, and only use it when absolutely necessary, I swear).

But that's what this is: it's technology employed to detect noncompliance, to hone in on dissent. The NY Times reports that the "Ukrainian government used telephone technology to pinpoint the locations of cell phones in use near clashes between riot police officers and protesters early on Tuesday." Near. Using a cell phone near a clash lands you on the regime's hit list.

Blimey. Do they think that's going to reduce protests?

I would've just joined...

Check out that UStream, it is just a wall of flames right now.

I was watching this last night, It would have been about 7am in the Ukraine and the cops were throwing just as many fire bombs at the protesters. A a bunch of stun grenades. Probably rubber bullets too, everyone was hiding behind shields and the buses.

Yep. One side armed with guns, the other with hammers.

Saw this dude walking up with a shield and the rubber bullets were just piling up at his feet as he was walking, just a constant barrage of rubber bullets hitting the shield.

Olympics should be interesting.
