On December 22, at noon, Kyivites honked their horns to protest against rampant government corruption and endless power struggles wrecking the Ukrainian Dream amid the country’s deepest economic crisis since the early ‘90s.
Signs on cars: “Enough!”
Banners: “Rescue team”
The man who mobilized this mini-Maidan on wheels is journalist Yuriy Romanenko, author of the The Middle Class Manifesto.
Romanenko explains the self-organized protest, denies partisan affiliation, thanks activists, outlines further we’ll-get-them protests, and narrates Ukraine political landscape:

Man atop SUV: “Enough! Enough! Enough!”
Man on sidewalk: “It’s important that people react, that they don’t feel afraid to squeeze out the slave inside.”
