Speak of freedom of assembly but think about...

It has been over a year since the beginning of peaceful protest on Independence Square in Kiev united by a common name Euromaidan. Rebellion had political reasons but an immediate reason for it was a violation of freedom of assembly. On December 1, 2013 hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian people came out to express indignation at the actions of the former government that with sticks of berkut restricted people's right to peaceful demonstration.
