Protests against Rosia Montana and shale gas resume in Bucharest

Around 200 persons protested in Bucharest’s University Square on Saturday evening against shale gas exploration in Pungesti and against the Rosia Montana mining project. Likewise, the protesters are dissatisfied with the new Penal Code, whose short-term effect is “the freeing of hundreds of convicts,” with the transformation of phone tapping into an instrument that cannot be used and the lowering of punishments for corruption. The protest took place without violent incidents, with the exception of some scuffles between protesters and gendarmes. Road traffic was not interrupted in the area.
