CHISINAU, September 11. /TASS/. Organizers of mass protests in Moldova’s capital say they are dissatisfied with talks held with the country’s authorities and are preparing a new rally in downtown Chisinau.
On Thursday, the protesters met with Moldova's Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet and parliament speaker Andrian Candu. "We handed over our demands to them, but we were not heard," Andrei Nestase, one of the leaders of the Civic Platform of Dignity and Truth (DA), said.
"This means that the talks are over now and we continue the protest. On Sunday, we plan to bring even more people on the main square. We will not go away from here and the tent town will stay permanently," Nestase said.
At talks, the prime minister and the parliament speaker "told fairy tales about reforms, the European integration and the implementation of the EU association agreement signed by the government," he said.
"They steal using the European integration slogans as cover and we call for the true European integration without thieves, bandits and oligarchs in power," Nestase said.
The Civic Platform of Dignity and Truth (DA) told the authorities that the demonstrations will be held on the central square on September 5-30. Last weekend, Moldova’s capital was hit by the biggest protests over the past years. Some tens of thousands of people took part in the rally, according to various estimates. Organizers insist that the protests drew 100,000 people.
The protesters demand the resignation of the country’s leadership whom they accuse of corruption and call for early parliamentary elections.
