New anti-government protests have been announced to take place on Sunday in Bucharest and in several cities in the country. “On Sunday, we will go in the street and send a warning signal against the assault against justice. Let’s all be in the street on Sunday to sound the alarm bell! Our silence is their power, so let’s make noise! We will fight until the end” reads the Facebook page of the event, which is called according to the King Mihai I’s speech in the Parliament: “We should resist the present and prepare our future”.
According to the organizers, the protesters will meet in the Victoriei Square starting at 17.00, and they will go to the Parliament, on the route Victoriei Square – Romana Square – Universitate – Unirii Square – Natiunile Unite Square – Parliament, where they will turn on the lights of the mobile phones.
The protesters intend to make noise on all the route with pots, spans and spoons.
People are dissatisfied with the changes brought to the Laws on Justice, with the manner of adopting them in the Parliament, with the “hidden nationalization” of the 2nd Pension Pillar, as well as with the changes to the Tax Code, “which will throw Romania into chaos”.
A flashmob will also be held in Bucharest at 15.00, in the Victoriei Square, being called “Romania condamnata la tacere” (“Romania convicted to silence” – e.n.), where almost 1,000 people announced their presence.
Thus, the participants will wear black ribbons on their eyes and will be silent for around 30 minutes.
“Unable to see, unable to say something. Helpless. Just as Justice in Romania will become. The message will be peaceful, powerful and clear: after the adoption of the Laws on Justice, the Romanian magistrates will become helpless in front of the theft, abuse and violence of the criminal groups in Romania. And so will all of us. Stop the amendments on the Laws on Justice!” the organizers wrote.
Anti-government protests have been scheduled to take place in several cities in the country, as well as abroad.
