Thursday, December 23, 2010

It happened this morning during Parliament no-confidence motion against the government voting session against the government: a man jumped from the chamber balcony (about 23 feet) right when the Prime minister was giving a speech.

He did it as a protest against the government's policy during the current recession and its austerity measures. He was wearing a t-shirt with the words "You have killed our future" written on it and yelled: "You have taken the bread from my children's mouths, you have killed the future of our children" right before he jumped.

According to reports, the man's suffered a leg and a nose fracture. While they were taking him out on a stretcher, he yelled "Freedom!"

This is all over the news right now in Romania.
