Occupy Bucharest???!!!

For the last few days protestors have been turning out in mass especially in Bucharest, Romania’s capital and largest city, but also in smaller cities like ours. No one is entirely clear on what the protests are about because right now the movement is lacking a strong leading spokesperson. However, it is clear that the Romanians are fed up with their corrupt government, extremely stratified society, and dysfunctional socialized medical system.

This site contains editorials translated into English. Some of the editorials are quite impassioned and beautifully written.
