CHISINAU, September 16 /TASS/. Representatives of Moldova’s DA (Dignity and Truth) civic platform on Wednesday set up pickets outside the president’s residence, the National Bank and the government building in Chisinau demanding their leaders’ resignation. But no one agreed to face the demonstrators.

About a hundred people beat the drums and tootled the trumpets.

"Mr. President, in a democratic country the head of state usually appears in front of demonstrators but you have not listened to us a single time. We are worrying for you. Please, wake up! You have been sleeping in your post for three and a half years. Come out and face the people now!" DA activist Inga Grigoriu said addressing the crowd.

"We have been forced to increase pressure on the authorities because they do not understand us on a good note. They continue ignoring our demands. If they do not hear us, then our protests will become more massive," demonstrator Valentin Dolganiuc warned.

The DA leaders said they would be unable to hold a multi-thousand protest rally, similar to the ones held in Chisinau on September 6 and 13, this Sunday.

"It is expensive for people in the regions to come to Chisinau to participate in protest rallies. However, a full-scale rally will take place in Chisinau when the final decision to oust the mafia from the government is made," Vasile Nastase, a DA leader responsible for contacts with the media, said. He added the DA would organize a car rally instead of a demonstration this Sunday to explain the civic platform’s position to as many people as possible.
