The demonstrators formed several columns that gathered near the building of the General Prosecutor’s Office. Protesters hold posters with anti-government slogans.
Traffic had to be diverted to other streets due to the blocked traffic.
Since September 18, an open-ended protest action has been held in Chisinau against the rise in food prices, the increase in energy tariffs and the political persecution of the opposition. The demonstrators repeatedly tried to pass through the Great National Assembly Square, but the police brutally pushed the activists back. In mid-October, special forces broke up a peaceful demonstration and dismantled an opposition tent city. The authorities limited the right of the opposition to protest during the period of the state of emergency, which was introduced due to the situation in Ukraine and the energy crisis, but the opposition did not stop pickets.
