This is a pretty interesting illustration. They can't actually resist the government or fight for their liberty in the traditional sense. All they can do is try to make the international news by getting shot/beaten/etc
I don't follow this at all. The protestors didn't need handguns because they already stormed an armory in Lviv and were carrying military style weapons to Maidan Square. If anything, Yanukovich proves that no dictator (sic) can resist an angry mob if it's large enough.
