"The worldwide wave of protest is spilling over into Romania, where resistance against corporate environmental destruction is taking off in a big way.

The demonstrations are directed against threatened environmental destruction, but the protests also express distrust of the government, of parties, and of the political establishment in general. There is already talk of a “Romanian Autumn”. The worldwide struggle against corporate domination and political collusion has opened a new front."
