Pensioners went to protest against the genocide unleashed by the authorities
While festivities, dedicated to the Independence Day, were being held on the Chisinau Main Square, dozens of pensioners gathered in the Square of Europe in the city central park to march against low revenues, high prices and tariffs.
They were holding banners “Europe, give us credits for raising pensions. We are starving”, “Seized state does not need pensioners!”, “Help us to survive!”, “Where is the promised pension raising?”.
Action participants marched to the monument of Steven the Great, where they laid flowers, while then they turned around and went to the Parliament with the demand to raise pensions.
Among protesters there were members of the opposition party “Demnitate si Adevar” [DA, “Dignity and Justice”] including its leader Andrei Nastase and deputy chairman Alexander Slusari.
As Infotag has already reported, the initiative on conducting the protest came from the Union of Pensioners of Moldova. Its chairman Victor Leanca stated at the last week press conference that it is impossible to survive on scanty pensions, given high prices on food, medicines, utility services.
“We have chosen this Government, we trusted it and now it is standing against us. We have nothing except hope, but we cannot wait and keep silence anymore, thus we have to fight with corrupt authorities. Each citizen should set a goal – to make life in Moldova better, more comfortable, in this way we can resolve our problems. The Government should hear us”, he stressed.
