I don't usually go into politics... but when I do, I tend to get personal and remember about the past! Thousands of people all over Romania as well as Romanian people living abroad went on the streets last night... and the night before as well! Why? - might you ask, well... it's only because power corrupts and the people that govern Romania are two faced lying bastards that care not about the people, but they do care about their rising bank accounts. Tuesday night an emergency ordinance came out - it decriminalised certain offences, but worst of all it stated that people that entertain official misconduct and the damage is less than 200.000 lei (that's around 38.000 pounds!) can and will walk away free. The news came at around 10 pm! Who passes laws at that hour!?
|People on Bd. Independentei in Iasi - February 1st, 2017|
Immediately people around the country took to the streets and the movement began... Media estimated around 12.000 people alone, that night, in Bucharest. Last night the numbers went up, not unexpectedly! At 5 pm the local radio was saying that around 5.000 people gathered in the Main Market Square in Iasi - Union Square / Piata Unirii. At around 9 pm the group marched along the Bd. Independentei (Freedom Boulevard... nice name ;) is it not!) under the balcony of the apartment I was in. I watched the column pass by for 40 min straight and went inside to my little one finally and the crowds kept pouring and pouring... peacefully and in order. The estimated number at that time, in Iasi, was over 15.000 people! The numbers coming from around the country kept rising and it was official now that Romania had another revolution in the making... the numbers of people in the streets was bigger than the one during the "Fall of Communism" Revolution in 1989. They were right... History does repeat itself! I just didn't think it would repeat itself so soon!
