wor(l)d up

This might be just another blog in the pool of all existing in the world. Why a new one? Because I believe that many times we prefer to close our eyes when things in society become a mess. Because this way I will keep myself more aware of what is going on in the world and not necessary in my proximity. This is a personal collection of facts that will eventually help me choose a project to get involved in.

This is what seems to be a spontaneous out-burst of the Romanians starting on the 13th of January and continuing. This is not only Bucharest, but also many cities in West of Romania and few in the East had their streets occupied. And this is not under “occupy” movement… People┬┤s demands are various, but they all reach┬á the climax asking the President, Traian Basescu and the government to leave.

Some people in the streets compared the actual situation with the movements that lead to the Revolution in 1989, but analists ask that such afirmations should not be made since Romania has done great steps in the process of democratization.

The photos: last night (14-15/01/2012), Romanians asked for the removal of the President in Piata Universitatii, the exact same place where they were celebrating and crying of joy when he was first elected…

Right now there are even more people gathered, it is said that many students will arrive in Piata Universitatii and the police threatens with fines. They gather at 10PM in many cities of the country. My fear is that tonight will be more violent. People are frustrated and that can be seen at any moment.
