basic information

Most local activists will write in the national language, although many of them speak 2-3 languages (good chance for rookie in english), but I trust first time always more those, that write in inet social media with their local language.

Activists are very clever. They know that they are read by reporters and if they don’t like that, they often use images with the written words in their language or use local slang!
