Moldovans Rally Against Government Corruption; Chisinau, Sept 2015

Taken on 2015-09-06

Tens of thousands of Moldovans rallied in the nation's capital, Chisinau, protesting a recent bank fraud that has seen $1 billion disappear from the national banking system - roughly one eighth of Moldova's gross domestic output. As a result of the fraud, the small and largely rural country's currency has depreciated significantly, raising inflation and adversely affecting already low living standards. Protesters came from all over the country and called for the resignation of President Nicolae Timofti, chanting "Victory! Bring the one billion back home!". Police put protester numbers at between 35,000 - 40,000 people - organizers put their estimates at three times as many(see Moldovan Protests 2015 Wikipedia page for more information).
