Teenage activism: pros, cons, and pitfalls

Duration
60’

Last year in Rivne, 16-year-old Darya Kotsyuruba and another activist were detained by the police for their protest demanding the President’s impeachment. The young activist Roman Ratushnyi, who protested against illegal development in the Protasiv Yar district, was threatened with kidnapping. Four civic activists have been murdered in Ukraine in the last two years. The youngest, Mykola Bychko, was 23 years old.


How has the situation with teenage activist safety changed in recent years? How are the authorities investigating the cases of persecution against young activists? Can teenagers freely express their positions without putting themselves in danger? What are the risks for young people who go to protests instead of school?

 

The event is organized in cooperation with the UHHRU.

 

Speakers:

Olha Reshetylova, Project Manager at the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union;

Darya Kotsyuruba, activist;

Oleksandr Yarema, Head of the State Agency for the Development of Youth and the Civil Society;

Vlad Levchuk, student at the 167th School of Kyiv, Student Government President.

 

Moderator: Roman Ratushnyy, activist, leader of the Protasovy Yar initiative group.
