Ukraine opposition protests are inspiring -- It's Time

When the front-running candidate tries to steal the election, reverting back to anti-democratic ways, the people of the Ukraine didn't just take that lying down.

They took over the damn country.

They set up tent cities in Kiev.

They flood their public spaces with orange, the color of opposition, and demand democracy.

Young people are leading the opposition in a group called Pora (translated as "It's Time"), as described in this New York Times article.

This is a wonderful thing to behold.
