Constanta joins ranks of 1989 Revolution martyred cities

The Senate adopted, yesterday, a bill by which the city of Constanta was declared a martyred city of the 1989 Revolution, and, according to the motivation for the bill, an injustice is thus repaired. “The December, 1989, Revolution was, most assuredly, an historic act of the utmost importance for the Romanian nation. (…) We need to show, by natural and necessary gestures, our gratitude to the heroes in Bucharest, Timisoara, Brasov, Sibiu, Lugoj. This bill aims at repairing an injustice, insofar as the city of Constanta should also be acknowledged as a martyred city,” the motivation reads, quoted by Mediafax. According to the aforementioned document, 30 people were killed and 88 were injured in Constanta, during ­ Revolution. The Legal Committee’s report, favourable to the bill, was adopted with 67 votes “in favour”, 14 “against” and three blank votes, while the bill itself received 73 votes “in favour”, 11 “against” and three blank votes. The Senate was the first Chamber notified, and the final decision lies with the Chamber of Deputies.
