Protest in Bucharest against new tax measures, justice legislation bill

 •  English

A protest rally organised on Sunday in Bucharest and attended by more than a thousand people ended around 22:00hrs, after the demonstrators moved from Victoriei Square to the headquarters of the Social Democratic Party (PSD).

The protest was against a bill amending justice legislation and an emergency ordinance amending the Tax Code.

More than a thousand people marched in protest at around 18:00hrs, from Victoriei Square to the PSD headquarters on Kiseleff Road. The gendarmes attempted to assemble the protesters on a single lane, but they occupied the whole Kiseleff Road, with traffic being restricted between the Triumphal Arch and Victoriei Square.

Once before the PSD headquarters, the demonstrators threw rolls of toilet paper in the courtyard of the building and shouted slogans like "We do not want to be a nation of thieves," "May DNA come get you!," "Thieves, thieves!,'' ''DNA, we are all on your side.''

The protest in front of the party headquarters ended without incidents. AGERPRES (RO — author: Mihai Stoica, editor: Nona Jalba; EN — author: Corneliu-Aurelian Colceriu, editor: Adina Panaitescu)
