A sad birthday

Sad birthday in Moldova. One year ago, on April 7th 2009, thousands of protesters were walking down the Stefan Cel Mare avenue, the main street in Chisinau (the capital of Moldova) to contest the election of the Communist Party. Some of them climbed the presidential palace to hoist the Romanian flag (probably they were themselves policemen, dressed up as demonstrators). Four liberal parties showed their support. Authorities accused the opposition of wanting to overthrow the Republic, and deployed troops around the building. Dramatic report : one dead, hundreds of wounded in riots. (photo : mia!, CC)
