NGOs, civic groups, unions prepare massive anti-Govt. protest in Bucharest

Around 40 civic groups and NGOs, as well as two of the biggest union confederations, BNS (made up of 34 professional federations) and Cartel Alfa (made up of 41 professional federations), will join forces for a massive anti-Government protest in Bucharest’s Victoriei Square on Sunday, November 26.

Through this protest, which is set to start at 18:00, the organizers demand the withdrawal of the legislative projects aimed at amending the Penal Codes and the justice laws. They also ask that the Parliament rejects the ordinance amending the Fiscal Code and the immediate resignation of the Government. The protesters also ask the presidents of the Chamber of Deputies and Senate to resign, according to a joint press release from the unions and the civic groups.

The organizers also urge other people to join the protest, as they say “Romania has reached one of the worst moments of its post-communist history.”
