Dealers from the central market of Simferopol (Crimea) demonstrated against water cuts followed by the closure of their work places and threatened with Maidan (street protests).
This was reported by a blogger, known by the nickname Crimean Banderovets.
“Friday, October 28, employees of the fish stalls protested against the water supply shut-off followed by the closure of their work places at the Central market in Simferopol. One could hear such words addressed to collaborators and representatives of the occupying city services: “Wish you became jobless! You and your children lived, as we did!”, “You wanna us to organize a Maidan here?!”,”They don’t cast dogs in winter! But we are human beings!”,”Together we are many, we can’t be defeated!” (the famous slogan during the Orange Revolution 2004 in Ukraine), “What are you doing!? We do everything legally! Let us work!”,” You will get a Maidan with tents!” Some were indignant, saying: whom did we vote for? (having in mind the so-called “referendum” on “joining” Russia). Other demanded documents and certificates, which the representatives of the occupiers refused to show. Still others promised to burn themselves… To be continued,” writes the blogger.
FOR INFORMATION: Maidan Nezalezhnosti (the Independence Square) is the main square of Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. In the recent history of Ukraine street protests twice started on Maidan: the Orange Revolution in 2004 and the Revolution of Dignity in 2014. Since then the word “Maidan” has become appellative in Ukraine and indicates street protests as such.
