Revolution of consciousness

Revolution_of_consciousnessThe Ukrainian people, especially the young generation, have always felt European, they always wanted to be recognised as Europeans and saw their future in Europe.  They share the values of rule of law, freedom and democracy. For them Europe was a promise of hope, and when the Ukrainian government refused to sign the Association agreement at the summit in Vilnius, people took to the streets to fight for their future.

#euromaidan

Ziemowit_Joswik

This time it is conspiratorial. From the clutches of the FSB, my friend, the politest, shyest, humblest young Pole I know, Z., has escaped. On a bus he has come, on a bus he will leave, appearing in Berlin for only a few hours before vanishing again into the East. Blackish clouds loom low over Warschauer Straße, where I wait for him, storm front Xavier blows squalls and gusts as he emerges. In the cellar of a Kreuzberg bar, where the world is upside down and no cellular phone can connect or be connected, E&M got this exclusive interview with Ziemowit Jóźwik, long-standing E&M author and the inventor of the #euromaidan.
