Supporters of the European integration of Ukraine. The protests were sparked by the Ukrainian government's decision to suspend the signing of an association agreement with the European Union , instead choosing closer ties to Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union. The scope of the protests soon widened, with calls for the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych and his government.
During the Euromaidan, there were protests and clashes with police throughout Ukraine, especially at the Maidan in Kiev, which was occupied and barricaded by protesters, along with some administrative buildings,  including Kiev City State Administration. On 8 December the crowd toppled Lenin statue nearby, police did not intrude. Protests and clashes increased in January, after the Ukrainian parliament passed a group of anti-protest laws.
Protesters occupied government buildings in many regions of Ukraine. The protests climaxed in mid-February. Riot police advanced towards Maidan and clashed with protesters but did not fully occupy it. Police and activists fired live and rubber ammunition at multiple locations in Kyiv.
There was fierce fighting in Kiev on February 18—20 , in which 77 activists and 17 police officers were killed see List of people killed during Euromaidan. Academic research suggests that many protesters were shot from locations controlled by Euromaidan. The day when agreement was signed, the motorcade of Yanukovych was fired upon  and shortly after that Yanukovych and other high government officials fled the country.
Protesters gained control of the presidential administration and Yanukovych's private estate. Afterwards, the parliament removed Yanukovych from office, replaced the government with Oleksandr Turchynov , and ordered that former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko be released from prison. Despite the ouster of Yanukovych,  the installation of a new government, and the adoption of the Ukraine—European Union Association Agreement 's political provisions, the protests have sustained pressure on the government to reject Russian influence in Ukraine.
The demonstrations began on the night of 21 November , when protests erupted in the capital, Kyiv , after the Ukrainian government suspended preparations for signing the Ukraine—European Union Association Agreement with the European Union , to seek closer economic relations with Russia. Protesters strived to break cordon. Police used tear gas and batons.
Protesters also used tear gas and some fire crackers according to the police, protesters were the first to use them. The protests continued despite heavy police presence,   regularly sub-freezing temperatures, and snow. Escalating violence from government forces in the early morning of 30 November caused the level of protests to rise, with ,—, protesters, according to Russia's opposition politician Boris Nemtsov , demonstrating in Kiev on the weekends of 1 December  and 8 December.
According to journalist Lecia Bushak writing in the 18 February issue of Newsweek magazine,. EuroMaidan [had] grown into something far bigger than just an angry response to the fallen-through EU deal. It's now about ousting Yanukovych and his corrupt government; guiding Ukraine away from its year-long, deeply intertwined and painful relationship with Russia; and standing up for basic human rights to protest, speak and think freely and to act peacefully without the threat of punishment.
A turning point came in late February, when enough members of the president's party fled or defected for the party to lose its majority in parliament, leaving the opposition large enough to form the necessary quorum. This allowed parliament to pass a series of laws that removed police from Kiev, cancelled anti-protest operations, restored the constitution, freed political detainees, and removed President Yanukovych from office.
Yanukovych then fled to Ukraine's second largest city of Kharkiv , refusing to recognise the parliament's decisions. The parliament assigned early elections for May The term "Euromaidan" was initially used as a hashtag of Twitter. The word "Maidan" is a Turkish word meaning "square" or "open space" adopted by Ukrainians from the Ottoman Empire. The term "Ukrainian Spring" is sometimes used, echoing the term Arab Spring. On 30 March the European Union EU and Ukraine initiated an Association Agreement;  however, the EU leaders later stated that the agreement would not be ratified unless Ukraine addressed concerns over a "stark deterioration of democracy and the rule of law", including the imprisonment of Yulia Tymoshenko and Yuriy Lutsenko in and They didn't believe in our ability to negotiate a good agreement and didn't believe in our commitment to implement a good agreement.
In mid-August Russia changed its customs regulations on imports from Ukraine  such that on 14 August , the Russian Custom Service stopped all goods coming from Ukraine  and prompted politicians  and sources    to view the move as the start of a trade war against Ukraine to prevent Ukraine from signing a trade agreement with the European Union.
On 21 November a Ukrainian government decree suspended preparations for signing of the association agreement. President Yanukovych attended the 28—29 November EU summit in Vilnius where originally it was planned that the Association Agreement would be signed on 29 November ,  but the Association Agreement was not signed.
In an interview with Lally Weymouth , Ukrainian billionaire businessman and opposition leader Petro Poroshenko said: My television channel— Channel 5 —played a tremendously important role. On the 11th of December, when we had [U. At the same time, more than 50 percent were ready to take part in the creation of independent military units, compared to 15 and 21 percent during the past studies, respectively.
In December , then Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov refuted the pro-EU poll numbers claiming that many polls posed questions about Ukraine joining the EU, and that Ukraine had never been invited to join the Union, but only to sign the Association Agreement. The pro-European Union protests are Ukraine's largest since the Orange Revolution of , which saw Yanukovych forced to resign as prime minister over allegations of voting irregularities.
Although comparing the events in the same East -West vector as , with Ukraine remaining "a key geopolitical prize in eastern Europe" for Russia and the EU, The Moscow Times noted that Yanukovych's government was in a significantly stronger position following his election in All those who came to Maydan [Independence Square], well done! Who has not done it yet — join us now! In an interview, opposition leader Yuriy Lutsenko, when asked if the current opposition was weaker than it was in , argued that the opposition was stronger because the stakes were higher, "I asked each [of the opposition leaders]: It is a revolution [ Was the Orange Revolution a genuine revolution?
And we see the effects today. The revolution wasn't a revolution of the streets or a revolution of political elections; it was a revolution of the minds of people, in the sense that for the first time in a long time, Ukrainians and people living in territorial Ukraine saw the opportunity to protest and change their situation.
This was a profound change in the character of the population of the former Soviet Union. Lviv -based historian Yaroslav Hrytsak also remarked on the generational shift,. This is a revolution of the generation that we call the contemporaries of Ukraine's independence who were born around the time of ; it is more similar to the Occupy Wall Street protests or those in Istanbul demonstrations of this year.
It's a revolution of young people who are very educated, people who are active in social media, who are mobile and 90 percent of whom have university degrees, but who don't have futures. This generation has a stronger desire for European integration and fewer regional divides than their seniors.
The lowest support for European integration was among people with incomplete secondary and higher education. The movement started peacefully but later protesters felt justified in using violence after the government's crackdown on protesters which happened during the night of 30 November The Associated Press said on 19 February:. The latest bout of street violence began Tuesday when protesters attacked police lines and set fires outside parliament, accusing Yanukovych of ignoring their demands to enact constitutional reforms that would limit the president's power—a key opposition demand.
Parliament, dominated by his supporters, was stalling on taking up a constitutional reform to limit presidential powers. Police responded by attacking the protest camp. Armed with water cannons, stun grenades and rubber bullets, police dismantled some barricades. But the protesters held their ground through the night, encircling the protest camp with new burning barricades of tires, furniture and debris. In the early stages of Euromaidan, there was discussion about whether the Euromaidan movement constituted a revolution - or a staged 'Colour Revolution' by outside forces.
At the time many protest leaders such as Oleh Tyahnybok had already used this term frequently when addressing the public. Tyahnybok called in an official 2 December press release for police officers and members of the military to defect to 'the Ukrainian revolution'. It is changing the national fabric of Ukraine. Media outlets in the region dubbed the movement, Eurorevolution  Ukrainian: On 10 December Yanukovych said "Calls for a revolution pose a threat to national security.
Revolutionary times have their own logic that is very different from the logic of ordinary politics, as writers from Alexis de Tocqueville to Crane Brinton have taught. The first thing to understand about Ukraine today is that it has entered a revolutionary stage. Like it or not, we had better deal with the new environment rationally. On 29 November, a formal resolution by protest organisers proposed the following: The resolution stated that on 1 December, on the 22nd anniversary of Ukraine's independence referendum , that the group will gather at noon on Independence Square to announce their further course of action.
After the forced police dispersal of all protesters from Maidan Nezalezhnosti on the night of 30 November, the dismissal of Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaliy Zakharchenko became one of the protesters' main demands.
A petition to the US White House demanding sanctions against Viktor Yanukovych and Ukrainian government ministers gathered over , signatures in four days. Ukrainian students nationwide have also demanded the dismissal of Minister of Education Dmytro Tabachnyk. On 5 December Batkivshchyna faction leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk stated,. Our three demands to the Verkhovna Rada and the president remained unchanged: The opposition also demanded that the government resumed negotiations with the IMF for a loan that they saw as key to helping Ukraine "through economic troubles that have made Yanukovych lean toward Russia".
The Euromaidan protest movement began late at night on 21 November , as a peaceful protest. On 30 November , the protests were dispersed violently by the Berkut riot police units, sparking riots the following day in Kiev. On 1 December , protesters reoccupied the square and through December further clashes with the authorities and political ultimatums by the opposition ensued.
This culminated in a series of anti-protest laws by the government on 16 January , and further rioting on Hrushevskoho Street. Early February saw a bombing of the Trade Unions Building ,  as well as the formation of "Self Defense" teams by protesters. On 19 January, a Sunday mass protest, the ninth in a row, took place gathering up to , in central Kiev to protest against the new anti-protest laws, dubbed the Dictatorship laws.
Many protesters ignored the face concealment ban by wearing party masks, hard hats and gas masks. Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko appeared covered with powder after he was sprayed with a fire extinguisher. Riot police and government supporters cornered a group of people who were trying to seize government buildings.
The number of riot police on Hrushevskoho Street increased after buses and army trucks showed up. The latter resulted in the buses being burned as a barricade. The next day, a clean-up began in Kiev. On 22 January, more violence erupted in Kiev. This resulted in people dead. After a series of violent events towards protesters in Kiev leaving of them dead. The next day he fled the country and was removed from office by the Rada on 22 February A 24 November protest in Ivano-Frankivsk saw several thousand protestors gather at the regional administration building.
The rally in Lviv in support of the integration of Ukraine into the EU was initiated by the students of local universities./p>
On 5 March , 7,, people rallied in support of Euromaidan in the same place. Smaller protests or Euromaidans have been held internationally, primarily among the larger Ukrainian diaspora populations in North America and Europe. The largest took place on 8 December in New York, with over 1, attending. Pro-government rallies during Euromaidan have largely been credited as funded by the government. Several news outlets have investigated the claims to confirm that by and large, attendees at pro-government rallies do so for financial compensation and not for political reasons, and are not an organic response to the Euromaidan.
The government uses these hirelings to provoke resistance. They won't be sacrificing anything. Automaidan  was a movement within the Euromaidan, that sought the resignation of the Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. It was made up mainly of drivers who would protect the protest camps and blockade streets.
It organised a car procession on 29 December to the president's residence in Mezhyhirya to voice their protests at his refusal to sign the Ukraine—European Union Association Agreement in December The motorcade was stopped a couple of hundred metres short of his residence. Automaidan was the repeated target of violent attacks by government forces and supporters. On 30 November , the day after the dispersion of Euromaidan, Euromaidan organisers, aided by groups such as Svoboda, created "Self-defence of the Maidan" — their own police force for protecting protesters from police and providing security within the city.
The groups are divided up into sotnias , or 'hundreds', which have been described as a "force that is providing the tip of the spear in the violent showdown with government security forces".
The sotni take their name from a traditional form of Cossacks cavalry formation, and were also used in the Ukrainian People's Army , Ukrainian Insurgent Army , Ukrainian National Army etc. Parubiy's force, there are some "independent" divisions of enforcers some of them are also referred to as sotnias and even self-defence , like the security of the Trade Unions Building until 2 January ,  Narnia and Vikings from Kiev City State Administration ,  Volodymr Parasyuk's sotnia from Conservatory building,   etc.
Parubiy officially asked such divisions to not call themselves Self-defence. Pravy Sektor coordinates its actions with Self-defence and is formally a rd sotnia,  although already had hundreds of members at the time of registering as a sotnia.
Second sotnia staffed by Svoboda's members tends to dissociate itself from "sotnias of self-defence of Maidan". The first of major casualties occurred on the Day of Unity of Ukraine , 22 January Four people permanently lost their vision,  and one man died by falling from a colonnade. The circumstances of his death are unclear. At least five more people were confirmed dead during the clashes on 22 January,  four people perished from gunshot wounds. It was established that the weapons and cartridges that were used to commit these killings are hunting cartridges.
Such is the conclusion of forensic experts. Most likely, it was a smoothbore firearm. I want to stress that the cartridges which were used to commit the murders were not used by, and are not in use of, the police.
They have no such cartridges," said first deputy chief of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry's Main Investigative Directorate. The MVS has not ruled out that Berkut officers committed the killings. On 31 January it was discovered that 26 unidentified, unclaimed bodies remained in the Kiev central morgue; 14 of which were from January alone.
On 18 and 19 February, at least 26 people were killed in clashes with police,  moreover, a self-defense soldier from Maidan was found dead. Journalist Vyacheslav Veremiy was murdered by pro-government Titushky and shot in the chest when they attacked his taxi. It was announced that an additional 40—50 people died in the fire that engulfed the Trade Union building after police attempted to seize it the night before.
On 20 February, gunfire killed 60 people, according to an opposition medical service. At least 79 people were killed and injured. At least 13 officers were killed and hospitalised with gunshot wounds. During the Hrushevskoho Street riots of 22—25 January, 3 protesters were killed by firearms. Oleh Tatarov, deputy chief of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry's Main Investigative Directorate under Yanukovych, claimed in January that "[t]he theory we are looking at is the killing was by unidentified persons.
This is an official theory, and the unidentified persons could be various people, a whole host of them… It could have been motivated by disruptive behavior, or with the aim of provocation. A report published on 25 January by Armament Research Services, a speciality arms and munitions consultancy in Perth, Australia, stated that the mysterious cufflink-shaped projectiles presumably fired by riot police on Hrushevskoho Street at protesters during clashes were not meant for riot control, but for stopping vehicles, busting through doors and piercing armour.
The bullets were reported to be special armour-piercing gauge shotgun projectiles, likely developed and produced by the Spetstekhnika Specialized Equipment design bureau, a facility located in Kiev and associated with the Ministry of Internal Affairs. On 31 January , Vitali Sakal, first deputy chief of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry's Main Investigative Directorate told a press conference that "[w]e are pursuing several lines of inquiry into these murders, including [that they may have been committed] by Berkut special police unit officers.
Today our client in Kiev, the honored Viktor Federovych Yanukovych, he will show you the heat when the Olympiad ends. You will know what is Yanukovych. Right now he got sick just in case, but later it will be announced, "Spare no bullets!
On 10 October Reuters published a report about their examination of Ukraine's probes into the Maidan shootings. This dismissed main evidence presented by prosecutor, a photograph of a man holding his rifle with both hands. Other "flaws" according to Reuters included the fact that no one was charged with killing policemen and that the prosecutors and the minister in charge of the investigation all took part in the uprising.
For example, the General Prosecutor of Ukraine Vitaly Yarema is known for hitting a traffic policeman in the face during the protests,  which he denied,  but a video of the incident appeared later and confirmed his involvement in the attack. Following the revolution of 18—23 February that saw over killed in gunfire, the government's new health minister, Oleh Musiy, a doctor who helped oversee medical treatment for casualties during the protests, suggested to The Associated Press that the similarity of bullet wounds suffered by opposition victims and police indicates the shooters were trying to stoke tensions on both sides and spark even greater violence, with the goal of toppling Yanukovych and justifying a Russian invasion.
This was all done to escalate the conflict, to justify the police operation to clear Maidan. The IBTimes reported that a telephone call between Estonian foreign minister Urmas Paet and High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton had been intercepted in which Paet stated that a doctor named Olga stated that victims from both sides were shot by the same snipers and that Olga had photos of the shooting victims with the same "handwriting.
Olga Bogomolets , the doctor, who allegedly claimed that protesters and Berkut troops came under fire from the same source, said she had not told Paet that policemen and protesters had been killed in the same manner, that she did not imply that the opposition was implicated in the killings, and that the government informed her that an investigation had been started. The bullets were all identical.
That's all I can say. In the bodies of the wounded militia, and the opposition. We have no documents to the investigation, state prosecutors won't show us any papers.
On 12 March , Interior Minister Avakov has stated that the conflict was provoked by a 'non-Ukrainian' third party, and that an investigation was ongoing. On 21 March , Oleh Makhnitsky , Ukraine Parliamentary Commissioner for the supervision of the General Prosecutor of Ukraine and a member of the right-wing Svoboda party, stated that the government had identified the snipers shooting at the demonstrators in Kiev as "Ukrainian citizens," but did not release their names.
The media suggested that it was not the Ukrainian riot police which fired on the protesters as previously believed, although the members of Alfa Team are Ukrainian citizens. On 2 April, law enforcement authorities announced in a press conference they had detained nine suspects in the 18—20 February shootings of Euromaidan activists, acting Prosecutor General of Ukraine Oleh Makhnytsky reported.
Among the detainees was the leader of the sniper squad. Officials also reported that they plan to detain additional suspects in the Maidan shootings in the near future, and stressed that the investigation is ongoing, but hindered by the outgoing regime's destruction of all documents and evidence.
Ukraine's Ministry of Internal Affairs confirmed that Viktor Yanukovych gave the order to fire on protesters on 20 February. Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, the interim head of Ukraine's SBU state security agency, said the agents were stationed in Kiev during the entire Euromaidan protests, were provided with "state telecommunications" while residing at an SBU compound, and in regular contact with Ukrainian security officials. Investigators, he said, had established that Yanukovych's SBU chief Oleksandr Yakymenko , who had fled the country, had received reports from FSB agents while they were stationed in Ukraine, and that Yakymenko held several briefings with the agents.
Russia's Federal Security Bureau rejected the comments as "groundless accusations" and otherwise refused to comment. In BBC published a story based on an interview with an anonymous sniper who said he was firing at anti-riot police from Conservatory music academy building on the morning of 20 January The sniper said he was recruited by a "former military" claiming to be working for Euromaidan leadership.
These morning shots are said to have provoked return fire from police snipers that resulted in many deaths. Andriy Shevchenko from Euromaidan leadership said he received calls from anti-riot police command reporting that his people are being shot by sniper bullets from the areas controlled by the protesters. Another Euromaidan leader, Andriy Parubiy, said his team searched the Conservatory and found no snipers.
He confirmed that many victims on both sides were shot by snipers, but they were shooting from other, taller buildings surrounding the Conservatory and was convinced they were snipers controlled by Russia. A number of attacks by law enforcement agents on members of the media and medical personnel have been reported. Some 40 journalists were injured during the staged assault at Bankova Street on 1 December At least 42 more journalists were victims of police attacks at Hrushevskoho Street on 22 January Polls have shown that two-thirds of Kievans support the ongoing protests.
A total of During the annual World Economic Forum meeting at the end of January in Davos Switzerland Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov received no invitations to the main events; according to the Financial Times 's Gideon Rachman because the Ukrainian government was blamed for the violence of the Hrushevskoho Street riots. A telephone call was leaked of US diplomat Victoria Nuland speaking to the US Ambassador to Ukraine , Geoffrey Pyatt about the future of the country, in which she said that Klitschko should not be in the future government, and expressed her preference for Arseniy Yatsenyuk , who became interim Prime Minister.
She also casually stated "fuck the EU. In February IBTimes reported, "if Svoboda and other far-right groups gain greater exposure through their involvement in the protests, there are fears they could gain more sympathy and support from a public grown weary of political corruption and Russian influence on Ukraine. On 21 February, after negotiations between the president Yanukovych and representatives of opposition with mediation of representatives of the European Union and Russia, the agreement "About settlement of political crisis in Ukraine" was signed.
The agreement provided return to the constitution of , that is to a parliamentary presidential government, carrying out early elections of the president until the end of and formation of "the government of national trust". Divisions of "Golden eagle" and internal troops left the center of Kiev. On 21 February, at the public announcement leaders of parliamentary opposition of conditions of the signed Agreement, representatives of "Right Sector" declared that they don't accept the gradualness of political reforms stipulated in the document, and demanded immediate resignation of the president Yanukovych—otherwise they intended to go for storm of Presidential Administration and Verkhovna Rada.
On the night of 22 February activists of Euromaidan seized the government quarter  left by law enforcement authorities and made a number of new demands—in particular, immediate resignation of the president Yanukovych. On 23 February , following the Ukrainian revolution, the Rada passed a bill that would have altered the law on languages of minorities, including Russian.
The bill would have made Ukrainian the sole state language at all levels. According to Eduard Dolinsky, executive director of the Kiev-based Ukrainian Jewish Committee , Ukrainian Jews overwhelmly supported the Euromaidan, however, its aftermath led to the raise of anti-semitism and social acceptance of previously marginal far-right groups, together with government's policy of historical negationism in regard to the WWII ethnic cleansing committed by the Ukrainian nationalist movement against the country's minorities.
Moody's Investors Service reported on 4 December "As a consequence of the severity of the protests, demand for foreign currency is likely to rise" and noted that this was another blow to Ukraine's already poor solvency.
On 3 December, Azarov warned that Ukraine might not be able to fulfill its natural gas contracts with Russia. On 5 December, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov stated that "money to finance the payment of pensions, wages, social payments, support of the operation of the housing and utility sector and medical institutions do not appear due to unrest in the streets" and he added that authorities were doing everything possible to ensure the timely financing of them.
On 11 December, the second Azarov Government postponed social payments due to "the temporarily blocking of the government". Fitch Ratings reported on 16 December that the political "standoff" had led to "greater the risk that political uncertainty will raise demand for foreign currency, causing additional reserve losses and increasing the risk of disorderly currency movement". On 18 December, the day after an economical agreement with Russia was signed, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov stated, "Nothing is threatening stability of the financial-economic situation in Ukraine now.
Not a single economic factor. On 21 January , the Kiev City State Administration claimed that protests in Kiev had so far caused the city more than 2 million US dollars worth of damage. On 5 February , the hryvnia fell to a five-year low against the US dollar. In Kiev, life continued "as normal" outside the "protest zone" namely Maidan Nezalezhnosti. According to a representative of the Kiev History Museum, its collection in the Ukrainian House on the night of 18—19 February, after it was recaptured by the police from the protesters.
Song was one of the unofficial anthems of Euromaidan. The song uses the first several words of the National anthem of Ukraine "Ukraine has not yet died". Among other tunes, some remakes of the Ukrainian folk song "Aflame the pine was on fire" appeared Ukrainian: The Ukrainian band Skriabin created a song dedicated to the revolutionary days of Maidan.
Belarusian rock band Lyapis Trubetskoy 's song "Daybreakers" was one of the unofficial anthems of Maidan. A compilation of short films about the revolution named "Babylon'13", was created. Polish and Ukrainian activists created a short film, "Happy Kyiv", editing it with the Pharrell Williams hit " Happy " and some shoots of "Babylon'13".
On 5 February , a group of activist cinematographers initiated a series of films about the people of Euromaidan.
It was filmed by several cameramen instructed by Loznitsa during the revolution in and and depicts different aspects, from peaceful rallies to the bloody clashes between police and protesters. In Netflix released the Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom about the Euromaidan protests. The documentary shows the protests from the start until the resignation of Viktor Yanukovych. Some photo correspondents created numerous unique pictures of everyday life at Maidan.
On 19 February, the Ukrainian athletes competing in the Winter Olympics asked for and were refused permission by the International Olympic Committee IOC to wear black arm bands to honour those killed in the violent clashes in Kiev.
On 19 February , alpine skier Bohdana Matsotska refused to further participate in the Winter Olympics in protest against the violent clashes in Kiev. A common chant among protesters is "Glory to Ukraine, Glory to Heroes! The red-and-black battle flag of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army UPA is another popular symbol among protesters, and the wartime insurgents have acted as a large inspiration for Euromaidan protesters.

If there are conditions that suit us, we will take that path. Vice President Joseph Biden, who told me that the issue of the IMF loan has almost been solved, but I told him that if the conditions remained Locals say they still feel part of Ukraine and have no desire to reunite with Russia — nor are they likely to engage in conflict with the west".
The New York Times. Retrieved 5 February Yes, it does make them sound like conservatives. I think a lot of NRX stuff basically sounds like people raised Blue rediscovering things conservatives have been complaining about for decades, and then giving them different names.
The special twist is phrasing this Great Relearning in such a way as to still paint conservatives as the Other Who We Are Better Than, because these are after all Blue-tribers who retain the primary concern of not being Red. Cthulhu always swims to the left; we alone swim North! This is certainly not the most charitable interpretation I could make; and indeed it is not even entirely or always my view, but it is an impression I am often left with.
Cthulhu always swims left, yes? But then they immediately take a step forward and start attacking something that used to be uncontroversial, and the other side takes a step back starting to defend the new target, and gaining new adherents to whom the new issue is important. And what CASL means is that in all eras where it would be true the ones who are pushing to the left gain ground more often. The low-church English dissenter origins of the Western progressive movement is quintessential Moldbug.
It seems to be a pretty good idea; there are a number of obstacles that prevent the simplest version of the idea from working, but they seem to be solvable. Paleolibertarians have the cheery views of the worst neoreactionaries but still hate law enforcement; this is a known thing. Not saying ClarkHat is racist. Raft of regrettable attorney stories omitted. One of us is wrong. Which of us do you think it is? Thirty days before Very Serious Trial, I got a crate of defense evidence.
In California, defense has to turn over evidence it plans to use 30 days before trial. In practice, it sometimes comes much later. I went through the pounds of paper. In a pack of hundreds of pages of mostly irrelevant architectural documents was a critical two-page expert report on Very Important Thing. This led to this conversation:. Hey, I got your Very Important Thing report, and it appears to have been misfiled in the middle of the engineering documents. I just sent you everything I needed to.
Also, they were planning documents, not engineering documents. Scott, I think I count six categories of harassment from the Pew study, not seven. At the last moment, the officers decided that the sub may be a wikipedia. This action brought the destroyer directly alongside the sub.
The funny thing is that the reference to Chomsky seems contemporary. No — a lot of linguistics papers from that era and even some book-length grammars were typed on typewriters.
Compare NUSA , which was typewritten until So people would type up a paper, send a hard copy to a journal, and if the journal accepted it, the journal would copy it by hand?
I am still confused by the movement to maximize human population growth per unit of available resources. I have the same feeling about all these pronouncements of how the continuation of humanity is, in itself, a great thing. On the other hand, some of? EA can be construed as having the goal of preventing awful deaths, with population growth being an accidental side effect. That seems much less paper-clip-maximiser-y to me.
Can you clarify the continuation of humanity thing? The only bad thing I can see about the end of humanity is that it sucks for the last generation. Have you read Parfit? Reasons and Persons goes into mind-numbing detail about almost every conceivable ethical issue relating to future persons. From a utilitarian perspective pushing humanity down and to the right on a Malthusian isocline more people who are more miserable could be a net positive OR negative depending on how aggregate utility functions pan out.
Note that they are plowing their resources into what is already the fastest growing region of the world , projected to add 4 billion new people by the end of the century. Spoken plainly, this objection to EAs is obviously racist. It is also a really solid objection to EAs.
For now I am donating to charities that improve the quality of human life, but not the quantity thereof. The world already feels overcrowded without 4 new Chinas being created in sub-saharan Africa. So far their most common counter-argument is that African-maximization is no worry because Africa will undergo demographic transition to low birth rates like the West.
In the meantime, altruistically removing local malthusian constraints in third world populations and betting that technology will save us from global malthusian disaster seems insane. It was supposed to link here. I know someone who makes the same arguments as you. So similar that I suspect it might be you. If you are not richascrassus on twitter, talk to him. I feel the same way about trying to increase quality of human life while being neutral or actively negative to quantity.
I think this is a pretty common belief in the effective altruist movement, though probably not a majority. But most effective altruists bring up what I consider a very strong point. The best way to deal with population explosions in Africa or elsewhere is to try to get them to undergo the demographic transition. While the factors affecting demographic transition are still sort of controversial see the Sister Y link above a lot of it seems to have to do with good education, security, and material standard of living.
This seems…a lot like what effective altruists are trying to provide for people in Africa. Both of these seem like things that a quality-but-not-quantity maximizer could be pretty okay with.
When they split out where harassment happens, the majority of both men and women have it from social media, but of those who had it during gaming, it was double the number of men. Because men play online games more, one would propose.
In fact, this could be Simpsons paradox: Yeah, I was thinking something similar: I would love to see them control for what sites people frequent. Just speculating here, it could be that men are more likely to hang on forums with lots of shit-talking, which would lead to some of what we see.
Also I wonder how they drew the line for violent threats. That matters, but it seems damn hard to measure. By way of example, some years ago, I hung out a lot on bullshido. Anyhow, the place was pretty dudely with a few awesome exceptions and shit-talking was constant — and look, some of these people would fly across the country to fight each other.
But the point is, violent threats were really super ridiculously common there. Like, all the time. I imagine weightlifting forums and similar get much of the same shit. Anyway, I really think this stuff is different from what Anita and company get, at least much of the time. This difference should matter to us. When done right, they set up a smoker match in an MMA gym somewhere, like with their coaches and a ref.
Done poorly, they met in parking lots. One thing I keep thinking about is, are the people responding to these surveys using the same criteria? Are there trends in interpreting the same things in different ways? Should I include only things I take seriously? How are other people responding? For instance, recently a game got kicked out of Steam because a developer tweeted death threats to Gabe Newell.
He is going to die. If asked about this in the survey, would I say yes? People have said very pornographic things to me as friendly jokes. PBS article receives one comment praising the article. Taylor Swift has started her new experimental artsy phase by releasing a hipper, more youth-friendly cover of a well-known John Cage song.
There are lots of fakes on youtube. On the post-Communist countries, there are huge differences. Russia has improved in both its private and public transportation systems since and is definitely more a success than failure story. It is SO incredibly frustrating that in the exact same entry complaining about how the media is misrepresenting the Pew poll about online harassment, you do literally the exact same thing.
Did you not actually read the Pew poll you linked? To clarify, here is what I see both you and the article doing: You then proceed to also completely ignore the fact that for young women, the effect is much stronger, and they do indeed have a much worse time online than men. There are indeed very interesting things in this poll. The fact of the matter is that the situation is not as lopsided as feminist, including me, have thought and portrayed it as. Also, they find that women are significantly more affected by online harassment than men.
This indicates that developing a thicker skin might actually be an effective tactic against trolls, and might even explain much of the difference in severe harassment. After all, if severely harassing women online is actually more effective than severely harassing men, you would expect trolls to migrate to this tactic for women, but not for men, since it accomplishes what they want.
In the official severe categories, men get 28 points and women get Scott gives lots of statistics equal weighting. His headline, such as it is, is that the media fabricates statistics. I agree that for all ages, the difference is not very substantive, although it definitely is for the younger ages.
What I was trying to do is show how Scott undermines his own point by misrepresenting the statistics, just like he accused PBS of doing. In reality, the worst that can be said of the article he links to is that it exaggerated parts of the poll to give readers the wrong impression and satisfy its headline. He exaggerated parts of the article and the poll to give readers the wrong impression to satisfy his headline. As I said, he undermined his own point by doing the exact same thing he is complaining about.

From 1 April to 14 March , there were separate minimum wage rates for men and women in New Zealand.

Jobs that require high-school and college qualifications are paid at least 1. As of November , they won three landmark cases and expect similar decisions in several dozens other courts. The Republic of China Taiwan government does not have a set minimum wage, but a basic wage in its Labor Standards Law serves the minimum wage function. The Trade Boards Act created four Trades Boards that set minimum wages which varied between industries for a number of sectors where "sweating" was generally regarded as a problem and where collective bargaining was not well established.
This system was extended considerably after the Second World War ; in Trades Boards became Wages Councils, which set minimum wage standards in many sectors of the economy, including the service sector as well as manufacturing. A lower limit of pay, or "pay floor" was regarded as threatening the voluntary system of collective bargaining favoured in the UK. The government had first made a serious attempt to abolish Wages Councils in , having abandoned existing legislation that tried to widen the scope of voluntary agreements to include those firms that had not taken part in negotiations, such as the Fair Wages Resolutions.
These required that government contractors pay fair wages and respect the rights of their employees to be members of trades unions. Instead the Wages Act reformed the wages councils and abolished the power to create new ones.
In its election manifesto, it had claimed that every other modern industrial country had already adopted a minimum wage. This rate was set after the Low Pay Commission LPC , an independent body the government appointed in July to advise it on low pay, recommended the rate. The LPC board consists of nine members—three trade unionists, three employers, and three labour market relations experts.
The Commission undertakes consultations each year to gather available evidence before making recommendations in its biennial review.
Some workers undertaking apprenticeships or accredited training may be exempted that is, not considered eligible to receive the NMW for a certain period of time, which varies according to their age and the length of time in employment. Other categories of worker who are exempt include au pairs , share fishermen, clergy, those in the Armed Forces , prisoners and some people working in family businesses.
The rate payable under the NMW can, in all cases, also be reduced where accommodation is provided to the worker. Unlike most other employment rights legislation in the UK, which generally rely on affected individuals raising grievances and making claims, if necessary, before tribunals to enforce these rights, the NMW has compliance teams, attached to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs HMRC offices who will act on approaches from workers who think they are being paid less than the minimum wage by contacting and visiting their employers.
Affected workers can either make a complaint directly to a national helpline or seek advice from another agencies such as their local Citizens Advice Bureau or the Scottish Low Pay Unit —this is particularly recommended if other employment rights issues are involved, as the HMRC can only deal with minimum wage enquiries.
