Support for Moldova's protesters
Organized by: Diana Grigoriev
How could $1 billion Euro disappear from Moldova’s three leading banks? It is a situation both disgusting and heartbreaking, covered up by a corrupt government. Moldova is a little gem of a country in Europe with a long history dating back to the 1350s. We have fought many enemies in the past, but it may be that our greatest enemy at this time is our own corrupt government. A government that bailed out Moldova's three leading banks after $1 billion Euros has vanished. Yes, vanished! And, no serious investigation was initiated to find the perpetrators and bring justice to millions of Moldova's citizens who were robbed of a better future. It pains me and millions of Moldovans that our elderly can barely make ends meet on miserable monthly pensions of about $60 USD, our families are torn apart because they cannot earn a living in their own country, and our children are left to grow up without a family core, decent education, and proper infrastructure. My grandmother worked 36 years as a primary school teacher and she now receives a pension of 1,000 lei equivalent to about $65 USD! But people are fed up and they have peacefully risen to protest the lies, the theft, the corruption and the lack of action by the government. No more silence! No more indifference! Your generous support will help us raise funds for tents, blankets, food and water, medicine, and other supplies for the thousands of people who set up camp on the main plaza of the capital city. All funds will make it to the courageous protesters. Records will be kept to demonstrate that the funds have been donated in full. Hai sa ne unim!
