Here were people who were probably a lot like my own forebears here in County Durham, who had worked down mines, who had cared for the sick, who were good at fixing things and were willing to aid family, friends and strangers alike in their hours of need. Donbass will always have a place in my heart for this reason, and if I ever get to go there, I will tell them what I’ve just told you, that their suffering was not lost on many of us here in the west – we heard them, and their struggle spoke to our hearts. I’ll finish this piece here with that thought – thank you dear reader for persisting this far, and may we meet our own struggle here in the imperialist core with that same courage and determination!
