The Romanian diaspora tried to organise a protest in solidarity with Pungesti in Brussels, in front of the USA Embassy, next week, on the 16th of January. Surprise-surprise, their application got rejected!!! With no explanation…that at the “core” of the European democracy…what a ridiculous joke!
Previously, the Romanians living in Madrid organised a protest in front of the US Embassy, 3 weekend in a row, with the same purpose, and it went all peacefully…Just to see how different European countries react to the most elementary right of the citizens: the right to protest. It was not enough that it takes 10 working days to get a permit to protest in Brussels (which is indeed outrageous, taking into account that such situations need rapid reactions), now they are not even granting this right. It is simply unacceptable!
