CHISINAU, November 28, 21:35 /ITAR-TASS/. Moldovan opposition on Thursday organized a series of actions to protests against the Association Agreement with the European Union Moldovan authorities plan to initial at the current Eastern Partnership summit in the Lithuanian capital city Vilnius.
Among protesters are delegates from the country’s biggest Party of Communists, the League of the Russian Youth, the Patriots of Moldova party and other public movements. Protesters are picketing the Chisinau office of the European Union, chanting slogans in support of the Customs Union [of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan]. They are pitching tents to organize reception points for people willing to speak with Moldovan lawmakers who are in opposition to the official course towards European integration.
“We are holding an anti-summit for civil rights and Moldova’s fair future,” Vladimir Voronin, Moldova’s former President and the leader of the Party of Communists, told journalists. “Those who say that Vilnius is a bright future for the country are liars. Vilnius only establishes economic and political dependence on Brussels and reduces possibilities for any constructive partnership with Russia and the Customs Union.” He promised that rallies and protest actions would be continued.
According to recent public opinion polls, the number of those supporting integration with the European Union is practically the same as the number of those favouring Moldova’s joining the Customs Union. Last weekend, Moldovan Communists organized a big rally in Chisinau’s central square urging not to initial the Association Agreement with the European Union. Among opponents of the Association Agreement are the unrecognized republic of Transdniestria and the Gagauz autonomy.
