A thousand young members of the pro-union group Youth of Moldova, who left on foot from Chisinau, are going to march on Sunday alongside those who will wait for them at 2 pm in the University Square in the Romanian capital, heading to the Cotroceni Presidential palace, where they will ask President Klaus Iohannis to urge the reunification process between the two countries, a press release of the Action 2012 Unionist Platform informed on Friday.
“The participants in the Stephen the Great March, as they called it, started from Chisinau, on July 5, right after the Great National Assembly took place, on foot, carrying the Romanian flag, through heat and stormy weather, to arrive today at the Prut river, where they recreated the famous Flower Bridges,” says the source.
They will leave for Bucharest on Sunday morning from the Iasi railway station, with stops in Vaslui, Barlad, Tecuci, Focsani, Ramnicu Sarat, Buzau, Mizil, Ploiesti and finally Bucharest.
“These young people have a strong desire to unite with Romania and they need our support to be able to carry this torch alive to Cotroceni! Come, Romanians, and welcome your brothers from the other side of the Prut river! Now, more than ever, they need you!” said George Simion, the head of Action 2012 movement in the abovementioned release.
