This is not the first time we have seen anti-corruption being carried out on the continent. The same is unraveling in Spain now and earlier in the year Slovakians took to the streets to protest the actions of the left. All of this is against the corrupt European bureaucrats, playing master puppeteer.
Now it is Romania’s turn to take up the reins. An estimated 30-60000 people have taken to the streets in the Romania’s capital, Bucharest to protest low wages, new laws to protect the politicians implicit in corruption people, we all know why you are trying to implement these laws), as well as the misuse of European funding. These have all lead to a major internal event like this happening. No longer are people of Romania wanting to put up with the European bureaucrats playing god with the politics that affect all Romanian’s. They are undermining the basic human rights of people that live in Romania and those that live abroad. They see this as a gross miscarriage of justice and are standing up to what they believe in.
Like I said. Tens of thousands of people, both those living in Romania as well as those living abroad have taken to the streets in anger. What has the Romanian government done? Oh, just ordered riot police to quash these protests. Hundreds have been injured from exposure to tear gas. Social media has been instrumental in organising this event. Facebook and Twitter have been essential in the spreading of word to rally against the government. Both in Romania and to Romanians living outside borders. Many have return, to support their fellow countrymen in the fight against a government they see, in their eyes, is stripping away fundamental rights of their countrymen. The President of Romania has condemned the attacks ordered by the governing social democrats. He is an outspoken critic of the leftist party and the changes to the law that would see its politicians get away with corruption charges. However, he has explained that the protestors that attempted to storm the house of government should also take some of the blame.
Altogether Romanian citizens are standing up for what they believe in. It is just another example of the ‘people power’ that we as citizens of the world can show. To stand up and show the people that are in ‘power’, that really are not. That it is the citizens living there that have the true power. It is proving that if you step out of line. We will take from you all that so called ‘power’ you have stupidly thought you had.
Summing up what is going on in Romania now. I believe that no amount of riot police can kill the vibe and mood of these protestors. Both in the capital and the other events that are simultaneously going on in other parts of the country. There will be more crack down and more injuries, on both sides. That I can definitely say to be true. Not until the governing party takes steps to change what it plans to implement will we see quiet on the streets in Romania. Meanwhile, what are the fat cat bureaucrats doing in Europe? From their track record they will be more than likely to extinguish the flames that these protestors have put into motion. Instead of having a backbone and doing what is right for the Romanian citizens, bringing peace and stability to the country. They would rather back the ruling leftist party as they see this as holding onto what little amount of left wing governing parties they have left.
I am afraid that until a political change occurs. Violence on the streets will continue to plague Romania. Be careful of the webs of fake news that the left will no doubt weave, to shift the blame from government on to protestors.
Good luck to all Romanian’s. we stand with you against the tyranny of the bureaucratic left-wing politicians.
