Thousands of Romanians staged an anti-government protest in Bucharest’s Victory Square on Friday, August 10, with many Romanian expatriates travelling across Europe to return for the stand against the corrupt government.Romania’s national news agency reported up to 60,000 people attended the rally, according to Euronews.The protestors were calling for the resignation of the government, which is led by the Social Democrat Party, Washington Post reported.An estimated three million Romanians live abroad, reportedly due, in part, to corruption, low wages and lack of opportunity.The protests were largely peaceful, however, there was vision of riot police in the area and Euronews reported tear gas was fired when some protestors tried to break through security lines.The protest is the latest in a series of demonstrations against the government since they came to power in 2016.
