In the regional center of Transcarpathia the rally representatives will meet with local self-defense groups.
13 activists, representing Rivne, Kirovograd, Lviv and Odesa, came to the regional center of Transcarpathia to spread the idea of creating a network of collective self-defense and talk about its necessity and effectiveness. Along with the convoy, which arrived in Uzhgorod, another Automaidan convoy is going in Ivano-Frankivsk region. They have to meet in Colomyia, then continue the journey together, one of the initiators of the event, a member of the Coordinating Council of the Assembly of Small and Medium Enterprises of Ukraine, member of the Free Space Council, deputy chairman of the Democratic Alliance Igor Hornyak told Zakarpattya online.
According to him, this is the fourth Automaidan organized this year: "Automaidan involves NGOs and trade unions from all over Ukraine: we are represented by more than 20 regions. We go across the country: either come in a certain city to solve a specific problem or meet with people to help them to organize themselves on the ground."
Current Automaidan’s slogan is "Protect yourself and Ukraine." As Igor Hornyak noted, "we understand that the election on 28 October is not going to change much, violations of the law and the Constitution on the ground will continue and perhaps even in greater scale. So we do our best to form a network of collective self-defense."
