The reality behind the closed borders of Moldova

1. April 5th, 2009: Elections are held in Moldova. At this moment, frauds are already established and noticed by Baroness Emma Nicholson. She found it "difficult to endorse the very warm press statement" from the head of the OSCE. The problem was that it was an OSCE report, and in the OSCE are, of course, the Russians, and their view was quite different, quite substantially different, for example from my own," she told BBC News.
She said she and other observers had a "very, very strong feeling" that there had been some manipulation, "but we couldn't find any proof".

2. April 6th, 2009 at 3AM: the alegeri.md site was showing a clear vote of the communist party. Several hours before that, everyone declared April 6th the mourning day for Moldova. People were encouraged to bring a candle go out in the Main Square downtown Chisinau.

3. April 6th, 2009 10 AM: over 10000 people were protesting downtown the capital in a very peaceful way. NOTE: the National Television is doing nothing but showing soap operas on TV. Clearly, very few of the people from the province knew what was going on. The ones who did, found out through internet via: facebook or twitter. People who tried to get in the capital were sent back to their cities, and because of that they started protesting there. Thus Moldova still felt a wave that was going to get bigger the next day because this was only the beginning.

4. April 7th, 2009 10AM: People are out in the street. By midday they are almost 40000 people ONLY in the capital. Similar protests are organized everywhere in the country, Romania, Western Europe. At this moment, people notice provoker who starts throwing rocks at the president's building. Other ones joined in and incited protestants to violence seeing aggressive skin-heads (supposedly prisoners brought by the police in order to destroy everything) knocking down non-communist offices and stealing from their safes. The hidden safe where the MP's salaries were being held has been destroyed completely (only someone from the inside could know that the MP's haven't received their salaries yet). The fire brigade was not rushing to stop the blaze and blaming the crowd for not letting them pass, which is not true! Part of the building was burned down, and people continuously protesting downtown.

5. Later, the EU flag is put up on the roof of the Parliament building. Important to note: IT”S NOT THAT EASY TO GET ON THE ROOF OF A GOVERNMENT GUILDING. YOU NEED A KEY. And that was provided by the policeman who was caught on camera.

6. By the end of the day: Chisinau looks like an open museum. Later in the night, people are arrested and taken in unknown places.

7. April 8th, 2009: After a discussion with the opposition the president of the country DOES NOTHING but blame the opposition for vandalism and attempt to government overthrow. Later, the Romanian Ambassador in Moldova is declared “persona non-grata” and is told to leave the country in 24 hours…for almost no reason. He announces that from Thursday Romanians will need a visa to get in the country, and they will have to pay for it. (note: there is NO FEE for a Romanian visa for Moldovans).

8. As protests continue, the police dressed up as civilians, kidnap protestants, put them in cars, and take them to places where they are beaten up and clearly forced to sign forms that they weren’t attacked by the police.

9. Fear is spread among the population. Policemen are going from schools to schools and arresting students, college students are expelled from universities, police cars are at every corner, and the PRESIDENT does nothing but BLAME the population of getting what they WANTED. The National TV station is surrounded by the army with Kalashnikov weapons, waiting on any kind of small protests because it was announced that April 10th, 2009 Moldovan revolution is about to start.

10. Internet shut down, no way of communicating, journalists are kidnapped, there is no access to the real news, phones don’t work, the borders of the country are blocked.

11. As a result of the previous actions, people are afraid to get out in the street, HOWEVER: everyone who is outside of Moldova is protesting.

12. April 10th, 2009: NYC, Boston and DC as well as all the other big cities in Europe experience the so called flower protests.

13. At this moment, people are waiting for a decision that they don’t even know who has the power to make it and whether or not it is the decision they will want to hear.

14. This is a NATIONAL WAKE UP CALL, and AN INTERNATIONAL EMERGENCY CALL. WE NEED HELP. Living in a civilized world means living in times of democracy, living in times where dictatorship is only part of history. Put yourself in their shoes, how would you feel? Isn’t it at least your right to inform the others about what’s going on? This is a brief summary about the REALITY BEHIND THE CLOSED BORDERS OF MOLDOVA.

  1. Mica corectie pt "April 7th, 2009 10AM"
    50000 people? Peste tot e scris 10000-15000.
    Dar daca aveti sursa ca erau 50000, ati putea destainui aceasta info, ca s-o transmitem mai departe?...
