PM Ciuca: The Mineriad of June 13-15, 1990 is one of the most painful moments in our post-communist history

Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca sent a message on Monday on the 32nd anniversary of the Mineriad [the miners’ riot – ed.n.] of June 13-15, 1990, stating that “the marathon demonstration of civil society against neo-communism was suppressed by some Romanians instigating against other Romanians” and that Romanian society must “never again fall victim to diversions and false propaganda”.

“It is the 32nd anniversary of one of the most painful moments in our post-communist history, the Mineriad of June 13-15, 1990, in which the marathon demonstration of civil society against neo-communism, held in University Square, was suppressed by some Romanians instigating against other Romanians. Romania was still looking for the path to true democracy. For those born later, the events of the spring-summer of 1990 are a page in recent history, on which I believe we have a responsibility, all of us, to reflect so that the Romanian society will never again fall victim to diversions and false propaganda,” transmitted the prime minister.

He mentioned that Romania is counting now on the stability and security conferred by its membership in the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance.

“But the difficult global context created by Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine forces us to remain cautious, to filter any information objectively, to become aware of the harmful nature of diversions promoted by the multitude of modern information channels and, last but not least, to defend and respect the rights of the citizens,” added Nicolae Ciuca.

He went on to say that the consolidation of democratic values and Romania’s integration “in the institutional architecture” generated alongside the Western partners must be continued.

“Today, our thoughts are with the victims of brutal manipulation and repression and their families. We have a responsibility to continue the strengthening of democratic values and Romania’s integration in the institutional architecture generated alongside our Western partners, who provide, especially in such periods, the guarantee of security and welfare,” said Nicolae Ciuca, according to Agerpres.
