Storyboard Text

  • Karolína Farská was getting fed up with Slovakia’s politics. Every time she looked at the news, a corruption scandal seemed to have hit the headlines. “And we’re a really small country,” she says. “I couldn’t see how it was possible for so much corruption to happen here.”
  • Corruption in the Slovakian Government Uncovered Yet Again
  • She called a friend to let off steam and he suggested that the pair march through the capital, Bratislava, just to show they, at least, weren’t happy. She set up a Facebook event. “We thought maybe 20 people would come – our friends, you know-"
  • No one's doing anything!
  • How about we go and protest at the capital, just us and maybe our friends- to show that we care?
  • Over 10,000 turned up.
  • No more corruption!
  • We want change! We want change!
  • Nope, never seen them in my life.
  • Give us closure!
  • Do you know them?
  • Today, Karolína is one of Europe’s most celebrated activists and one of the few people making the continent’s future look optimistic, persisting even when told to stop.
  • Uh...okay. I've spoken out and protested about our failing democracy before I even started a career. What have you done successfully? Quickly.
  • ‘You can’t change anything. Come on, go study.’
  • She co-organised new protests, which this time saw up to 65,000 people march through Bratislava – almost a fifth of its population. 
  • She organised a second march, and a third – each one bigger – and the mood in the country changed. “People realised they truly have power,” she says. “It’s not just that they can vote once every four or five years.”
  • “‘Are we going to protect our democracy, our rights, everything we’ve built here? Or are we going to do nothing?’”
  • Then the prime minister resigned.
  • I give up!
