'I Am a Ukrainian' Protest Video Goes Viral

BBC News: A YouTube video of a protester in Ukraine has been viewed 3.5 million times – are we seeing the rise of the viral video protest?

In the three months since the start of the Ukraine crisis, there have been countless videos uploaded to YouTube. But none has had anything like the impact of a video called “I am a Ukrainian”. In it, a young protester stands on the street in Kiev on a cold dark night. She addresses the camera directly and simply. “We want to be free,” she says – in English. The courts are corrupt, she says, and politicians are behaving like dictators. The video has had thousands of comments, with people writing from around the world to express solidarity – from Egypt to Kashmir to Turkey.
