Announcement :: International
Ukrainian Protest Coalition: We Stay until Inauguration
18 Jan 2005
Despite Yushchenko's recall of protest in Tent City, a coalition of activists declares to remain on the ground until inauguration.
Declaration addressed to V.A. Yushchenko:

We, the protesters of Tent City, make this address to V.A. Yushchenko to state our position regarding Tent City, Xreshchatik, in response to the call made to clear its grounds.

1. The protesters in Tent City gathered in Kyiv in order to support the campaign of V.A. Yushchenko, to demand fair and transparent elections, to advocate democratic power in Ukraine, and to assist in turning over the previous oligarchic-criminal regime.

2. Our presence in Tent City will uphold the spirit of the Revolution until its logical victory, i.e. the inauguration of our democratically-elected president, V.A.Yushchenko.

3. Our presence in Tent City will also prevent the supporters of opponent, V.F. Yanukovich, from occupying the territory claimed by the Orange Revolution.

Therefore, we consider the clearing of the tents of protest prior to the inauguration of democratically-elected President Yushchenko to be strategically inappropriate.
