Over 20,0000 Romanians to protest outside parliament on June 15

Romania’s five large union confederations on Thursday said at least 20,000 people will picket the Parliament building on June 15, the day lawmakers hold a vote on the opposition’s no-confidence motion against the Government’s austerity plan.

They also said protesters will form a human chain around the building from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. when lawmakers enter the Parliament building.

The five union confederations on Thursday agreed on a series of measures regarding protest rallies set for June 15 at the Parliament headquarters. The protest aims to get lawmakers to overthrow the democrat liberal Government by voting in favor of the opposition’s no-confidence motion, and do away with salary and pension cuts.
