21 Dec

24 years ago, on December 21th began the Romanian Revolution that toppled the communist dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu. But the hopes of a better life for most Romanians dwindled in time, many of them being forced to  leave the country and work in Western Europe in order to make ends meet. During all these years the country was continuously ruled by the old apparatchiks, its riches being systematically spoiled in a Mafia style by the off springs of the old “nomeklatura” clique.
Protests abounded in Bucharest today. Unfortunately, with way too many issues on the agenda, the message of the protest was quite incoherent in the chilly days of the year’s end not very conducive for large gatherings.
