Hundreds of angry demonstrators issued an ultimatum to the Ukrainian government on Sunday, demanding amnesty for fellow activists just hours after vacating city hall, the epicentre of a winter of protests.In a conciliatory gesture early Sunday, up to 700 protesters evacuated the building in response to a last-minute concession by the authorities who released all protesters detained in unrest on Friday.City hall was eerily quiet inside, with many of the protesters' drawings and photos still on the walls.The evacuation of city hall was one of the conditions set in an amnesty law approved by Yanukovych early this month, promising to heed opposition demands to release detainees and drop charges against them.Some protesters -- including at least one disabled man and a retiree -- have been charged with fomenting mass unrest, which carries a sentence of up to 15 years in jail.Ultimately, protesters want Yanukovych himself to leave.
