Photo: Orange Revolution in Berezhany II

About four thousand people demonstrated in front of the county administration buildings in Berezhany on Day 1 (November 22, 2004) of the Revolution, in a scene that was repeated in cities, towns and villages throughout much of Ukraine--the Orange Revolution did not take place only in Kyiv. For the next few weeks, the demonstration here turned into a permanent picket. People each day shouted "Shame! Shame!" and expected to hear from officials an explanation of their part in the falsification of the election. In the above picture (OR in Berezhany I), take note of the boys standing on the stairs near to the entrance--they were all holding eggs in their hands, waiting for thechief of the county administration, one Shynyshyn (I forgot his first name), to come out!
