In Chisinau, several thousand people took to the streets demanding the resignation of the government and early parliamentary elections. The demonstrators have already surrounded the building of the country’s government, according to the correspondent of the TV channel “MIR 24” Elena Kirka.
More than 10 thousand people came to the anti-government rally in the center of the capital today. People came here from all over Moldova. Protest action began with a little delay. According to organizers, the flow of demonstrators to Chisinau was deliberately restrained by the police.
They reached the rally protesters on their own. Those who did not have enough money for a minibus, used special equipment.
“Some of the protesters came here on tractors. They are standing at the entrance to the city, because they were not allowed to go further. The police stopped public transport so that people did not get to the rally, “- says activist of the civil platform” Dignity and Justice “Inga Grigoriou.
The General Inspectorate of the Police rejects these accusations. They talk only about enhanced security measures. The building of the government, in front of which the demonstration unfolded, is guarded by the police’s triple cordon. The protesters are calm. The main demands are the resignation of the current government and the return of a billion dollars stolen from the country’s banking system.
“I came here because I do not agree to pay the stolen billion. We were stolen by the country, we are not masters in it, all the people were put on their knees, “Elena, the participant in the protest, explained.
“We have to stand here today and tomorrow. And for Easter, they should stand to drive this power away, “Nikolai said.
The flow of people to the square is growing all the time. Other opposition groups joined the protesters. People say they are ready to stand here until the last.
Their demands are conveyed by the demonstrators in the notes to the organizers. Later they will become part of a general resolution.
Anti-government rallies in Moldova last about six months. A new wave of protest movement intensified in January after the approval of the government of Pavel Filip.
