Moldova. Demonstration instead of celebration
BSSB.BE euronews.com/ 30.08.2016
Tensions boiled over during Moldova’s independence day parade, as protesters clashed with police in the capital.
Officers used tear gas to disperse anti-government demonstrators who had gathered in Chisinau *KISHENOW, calling for political change.
One protester explained:
“We decided to celebrate this day in this manner, because we do not at all feel free. People are poor, people leave the country…Those who have recently stolen a billion dollars from us, organise military parades, waste millions from the budget on it, which essentially means from our money in the time of crisis.”
Twenty-five years after declaring independence from the Soviet Union, the country is plagued by corruption, poverty and emigration.
The disappearance of nearly 1 billion euros from Moldovans banks has rocked people’s faith in politics and the country has seen five different prime ministers in the last year alone.
Anti-government protests have been gathering pace in the last year and many promised further protests in September.
