In one of the largest mass protests since the fall of communism, around 50,000 Romanians took to the streets of Bucharest on Wednesday.
They are furious at drastic cuts to state wages and pensions proposed by the government to reduce the country’s ballooning budget deficit.
“I am a pensioner after 40 years of working and they want to cut 15 per cent of our pensions. How will we live from now on?” asked one angry woman.
Protesters say they should not have to pay for the government’s corruption. But the government says its hands are tied.
