“What is the motivation behind this endeavour? Who are the main actors on the street? What is the outcome of their efforts? We are Magdalena, Clemens, Petya and Philipp, four students of East European Studies at the FU, who are looking for the answers to these demanding questions within a university project on the topic of civil disobedience in Eastern Europe. Stay tuned to get the answers yourselves!”
