Romania Is On The Brink Of Civil War

Day 223/365: I can’t help but be worried about my country

!!!WARNING!!!

Some of the information and pictures from this post might be hard to swallow for some of you. Please be advised!

First of all, read about what happened last night in Bucharest here, here and here, just to be aware of where we’re starting from.

Second, read about the 1990 scandal in Bucharest which, frankly, was somehow what happened last night. Just replace “miners” with “military police (Jandarmeria)” and “president Ion Iliescu” with “authoritarian political leader who’s now a proven felon Liviu Dragnea” and you’re basically in the same situation as 30 years ago, just after the Revolution.

Last night, about 100.000 Romanians from Romania and from around Europe gathered in Victory Square in Bucharest to protest. Even from the start of the protest, there were small fights between some of the protesters and the military police (Jandarmeria) which was responsible for protecting and maintaining the peace in and around the square.

I can’t understand how the 1000 or so military police fighters passed their psychological exams before being allowed to enrol in the force. All of these fighters are responsible for a great deal of violence, unnecessary, unprovoked, brutal violence they’ve manifested towards Romanians.

I’ve seen people having their eyes pulled out of their heads, people with both their legs broken, handicapped people dragged out of their wheelchairs and beaten on the ground. Hundreds of people intoxicated by gas guns, put on the run by heavy water guns and having their heads split by bastons and shot with rubber bullets.

In the middle of their country. In the middle of a peaceful protest. 500 people were rushed to the hospitals all around Bucharest, which is as many people as there were in 1990 when the miners came to the capital to beat civilians.

Why is the military police having guns with them in the middle of the crowds? They can’t carry guns!

There were people who had holes in their legs from the shrapnel grenades the military police threw in the crowds. Why they were equipped with these weapons, that’s a good question for Liviu Dragnea and his band of friends to answer.

It’s absolutely terrifying and unbelievable to stand in front of the TV set and cry as your fellow Romanians get beaten up while they peacefully protest and ask for their rights to be respected.

It’s amazing to see military police looking like the Ninja Turtles trowing crying gas towards 4-year-old kids, old people and beating guys who were just staying there and having their hands in the air.

The military police or Jandarmeria have no excuses for what they did last night. They moved through the crowds with brutal, criminal force and should be ashamed for their actions, as they were simply protecting the interests of a band of criminals that are now ruling, not governing the country.

These Ninja Turtles have destroyed a 160-year-old noble service created by Alexandru Ioan Cuza when this country was about to become a thing. Instead of saying a firm “no” against the criminal order to beat the people of their country, they said “yes” to a command by the band of felons ruled by Dragnea and his government.

Romania is on the brink of a civil war. Tonight, the protests will continue in the Victory Square and the military police are already getting ready with more guns and more gas. The people are angrier and ready to withstand more gas and more guns.

I’m totally against violence. I’m totally shocked by the things that just happened last night happened in the middle of the capital of MY country. I’m ashamed by the state of this country.

I don’t know what’s going to happen from now on, but the certain thing is, the people that are behind this, the people that are the reason for this, Liviu Dragnea, his government and his party, they have to all leave their positions and get out as fast as possible.

If they can’t do that, I’m not sure things can get back on track soon enough for the country to avoid an actual civil war-type of conflict. I pray to God I’m wrong about this and that everything is going to be fine as soon as possible.
