7 - Because we Care


one year ago
in Moldova
after the parliamentary elections were announced, ... See More
many people went to protest because elections were fraudulent. They demanded a recount, a new election, or resignation of the government.

The protesters organized themselves using online social network services like twitter, facebook. In capital, the number of protesters rose above 15,000.

But, unexpectedly, the demonstration escalated into a riot on April 7. Rioters attacked the parliament building and presidential office, breaking windows, setting furniture on fire. Afterward, mass arrests and torture happened. Police and secret services took innocent people from the streets, torturing them. There is a number of deaths, the mastery of which we discover today. Through the gate of torture One Swallow Makes No Summer Where's Human Rights? or "Moldova's Twitter Activist Under House Arrest" This is Moldova Direct REVOLUTION on net!

Hi Victoria

Your voice is really important. I read your articles and they are showing a reality that needs to be seen by the world.

Please go on. People need to form opinions about violence, they need to learn how, where, when are the violents in need of a lesson in peace making.

I pray for your country to find the right leaders, as soon as possible.

End of neverending

Dear Jackie,

It looks like violence is a thing people cannot live without. They get bored and they look for it. When they find it, they don't care who it affects. Never ending process? Yep, starts in one place, spreads, then, depends on the situation, if you face it and solve it in a peaceful way, it diminishes. But if you try to react, it keeps a track on you.

Way to survive - always be aware.

And the cycle repeats

Dear Victoria

Please keep safe from the violence. It seems like violence is like a drug. Some just can't live without the adrenalin "high." I am so sorry for all who were killed and injured. So many have such a huge investment in being "right" and "better than" others. Many blessings on all Thank you so much for letting us know. Take good care of you.
