CHISINAU, September 7. /TASS/. About 100 demonstrators in the tent camp in front of the entrance to the Cabinet of Ministers’ building in the center of Chisinau are continuing the protest against the authorities’ current policies. On Sunday, there was a multi-thousand rally in support of the demand for the resignation of the president and the government.
Last night in the city was "calm", the Interior Ministry has told TASS. Towards Sunday evening the capital in the center of the city, where according to police estimates, up to 40,000 protesters had gathered to demonstrate grew empty.
At the moment traffic in the city center has resumed. Reinforced police patrols are keeping an eye on public order. The organizers — leaders of the Dimnetate si Adevar (DA) Dignity and Truth — have said that they would push ahead with peace protests and stay in the tent camp until their demands have been met. Several dozen tents were put up in front of the government building.
Taking part in the protest actions were representatives of the Dignity and Truth platform and supporters of the Red Block party. They accused the country’s leadership of catering to the interests of oligarchic groups and merely simulating the process of eurointegration. DA representatives held a ten-hour rally near the government building. The protesters’ leaders were received by Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet and presented a resolution with a list of demands, such as early parliamentary elections no later than March 2016, the resignation of the current president and the direct election of a new one. Also, the demonstrators are pressing for the resignation of the government and appointment of civil society representatives in charge of the law enforcement agencies.
Strelet said the authorities were prepared for a dialogue with the protesters.
The Dignity and Truth platform was established last spring, when Chisinau saw mass protest rallies. The demonstrators accused the authorities of defrauding the banking system of $1 billion.
