New protests on Sunday in Bucharest and dozens of other cities BNS, Cartel Alfa and 42 civic organisations call Romanians to take to the streets

New protests were announced for Sunday evening in Bucharest and dozens of other cities, 42 civic groups and non-governmental organisations, as well as the National Trade Union Bloc (BNS) and Cartel Alfa trade union confederations calling on Romanians to take to the streets and demand the withdrawal of the judicial laws, the repeal in Parliament of the ordinance amending the fiscal legislation and the resignation of the Government and of the Speakers of the Lower House and Senate. ‘They are taking about the deep state. The reality is Romania is ending up being a captured state,” the initiators of the protests state.

The protests were scheduled on Sunday, at 6:00 p.m., in Bucharest and almost 80 other cities, as well as abroad in Milan, Zurich, Birmingham and Paris.

In Bucharest, protesters were expected to leave Victory Square at 7:30 p.m. and to head toward the Palace of Parliament, with the messages “you won’t get away” and “resignation.”

“PSD-ALDE has speedily entered the last phase of the adoption of the judicial laws: accelerated timetable in Parliament, massive mobilisation within the committees, the forcing of parliamentary procedures. They are talking about the deep state. The reality is Romania is ending up being a captured state,” reads the page of the event.

Forty-two civic groups and non-governmental organisations, as well as the National Trade Union Bloc (BNS) and Cartel Alfa trade union confederations have called on Romanians to take to the streets on Sunday and demand the withdrawal of the judicial laws, the repeal in Parliament of the ordinance amending the fiscal legislation and the resignation of the Government and of the Speakers of the Lower House and Senate.

The signatories of the call launched on Facebook – the ‘Romania 100’ Platform, Corruption Kills, the Romanian Centre for European Policies and Freedom House among them – state that Romania has reached one of the gravest moments in its post-communist history, comparable to the miners’ riots of the 1990s, the financial crisis and the cutting of public sector salaries in 2010.
