KIEV, Ukraine — About 6,000 people gathered in Ukraine's capital Thursday on the fourth day of demonstrations against tax law changes, part of the largest nationwide wave of protests since the Orange Revolution of 2004.

The demonstrators set up tents in Kiev reminiscent of the encampments of the Orange Revolution, which brought in an era of tumultuous democracy in Ukraine.

Parliament adopted the new tax bill last week, but President Vikor Yanukovych is hesitant to sign it, fearing it would take a serious toll on his popularity. He offered to meet with the protesters later this week and take their demands into consideration.
