Moldovan Protesters Demand President's Resignation

Tens of thousands of people demonstrated in the Moldovan capital, Chisinau, on September 6 to demand the resignation of President Nicolae Timofti and early elections in the wake of a $1 billion bank fraud. Protesters shouted slogans such as: “We want our country back!” and “Down with the oligarchs!”and called for lower energy prices and higher salaries and pensions. Demonstrators set up a tent city and vowed to remain there until their demands are met. (RFE/RL's Moldovan Service)
