Mass anti-government protests organized by the civic platform Dignity and Truth (DA), began in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau Sunday.
Since September 5, protesters in Chisinau have been demanding the resignation of the Moldovan government and the chief prosecutor, while also calling for early parliamentary elections and a prompt action to tackle corruption in the country.
“Today we are going to increase pressure on the authorities. At the protests brought together residents from all parts of the country. We are determined to go till the end, until all of our demands,” a DA activist, Andrei Nastase, told reporters on Sunday.
The protests in Moldova were sparked by the disappearance of more than $1 billion, or the equivalent of 15 percent of the country’s total gross domestic product, from three Moldovan banks last year. The incident negatively affected the country’s banking system and led to the depreciation of the national currency, the leu.
