Thousands have protested to the justice system they say will allow corruption to go unpunished and also a tax reform which may lead to lower salaries in Romania's capital against proposed changes.
Protesters briefly scuffled with armed authorities in Bucharest, and they blew whistles on Sunday and called the ruling Social Democratic Party "the red plague." Prosecutors recently froze the assets of party leader Liviu Dragnea amid a probe into misuse of European Union funds.
It was the protest over government plans; Demonstrators oppose a law that will change the employee social security taxes. The government says it's going to improve earnings.
Vasile Grigore, a 42-year-old physician, said: "We do not want our country to be administered by people who are criminals, incompetent and uneducated."
