A wonderfully made video collage that points out the similarities between the bloody Romanian Revolution in 1989, when the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu has declared the necessity estate and ordered the military forces to shoot, and Pungesti, where by a 21st century dictator, embraced by the West and especially by the USA, the same necessity situation was declared, allowing the military police (the riot police) to do horrific things. Ok, they did not shoot, but terror can be worse without weaponry, if it is applied from the psyops manuals used by the American intelligence to defeat the antifracking insurgency and you add up the Romanian intelligence own methods, famous for their violence during the Iron Curtain times.
Pungesti, December 2013, we see warfare methods of totalitarian Communist and Capitalist regimes shaking hands to create the most pervert type of dictatorship: the 21st century dictatorship within the EU, with the approval of the rest of the Member States.
We shall never forget Pungesti, 2013. The world has the duty to remember this incredible attack to Democracy and Human Rights tight in the middle (not geographical, but still) of the European Union.
Fracking and extreme Capitalism, modern day neocollonial types of occupation have made it possible. The dirty hands of Chevron have become even dirtier after Pungesti.
Romania enters 2014 occupied by Chevron and the USA, with the complicity of a deeply corrupted political class that has sold the soul of its people for their own benefits. The list of the occupiers will become more obvious and much longer in the year to come, when more and more Chevron-like corporations and purpose-made joint ventures will pop-up everywhere to take control of the last ressources of Romania.
We cannot wish ourselves a happy new 2014, we know this year will be a year of dramatic fight.
We wish you all and ourselves a frackfree, really democratic new year, as we discovered that these are the most precious goods a country could have, once we lost them.
