Protests Odessa – The biggest so far

February 17, 2014

It has been quite some time since I wrote about the protests in Odessa despite attending and observing them most Sundays.

They have been, it has to be said, quite small if perfectly formed, a-political as far as party flags and banners are concerned, and stoically attended by what has become a fairly familiar few hundred faces.

Today however, was probably the largest – and certainly the most colourful – of all the gatherings since they began.

Today was a cast of several thousand, rather than several hundred.

Today, the entire length of Deribasovskaya was covered by the colours of Ukraine, held aloft by the determined and resolute for change.

Today was – as always – a peaceful affair.
