Ukraine: 25 killed, 241 injured in Kiev clashes

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Thick, dark smoke rose above the center of the Ukrainian capital amid the boom of police stun grenades today, as officers in riot gear sought to push demonstrators away from the city’s main square following deadly clashes between police and protesters that left at least 25 people dead and hundreds injured and raised fears of a civil war. After several hours of relative calm, confrontation flared up again this afternoon, with hundreds of police amassing on the edges of Independence Square, known as the Maidan, throwing stun grenades and using water cannons in a bid to disperse protesters. Thousands of activists armed with fire bombs and rocks held their ground, defending the square which has been a bastion and symbol for the demonstrators.

The pressured of the world know there is a better way. Not advocating for violence but the surpressed of the world is saying enough is enough. Syria, Ukraine, Israel, South America, and others (that somehow are not a part of political agenda in the media) are fighting back. The bone is no longer enough.
