border repression against anti-nato activists

Law breaking as a European standard; Romania shows its democratic side with more repression.

Since the Romanian N.AT.O. Summit was confirmed; people who do not agree started their own campaign against N.A.T.O. While the summit preparations were in progress the corporate main-stream media started its own campaign of misinformation and public opinion manipulation against the critical point of the anti-militaristic movement. Using only violent protest images and presenting wrong facts, they turned anti-nato activism into a war-hungry, militant alliance (much like N.A.T.O. itself) monster that is going to attack Bucharest. All this misinformation created a reason for the authority’s repression. Any future repression was shown as a measure of security, typical N.A.T.O. strategy (creating an enemy to have an excuse for a war).

Yesterday 6 persons felt the repression of the border police for 19 hours, when they tried to enter in Romania. All of then were german citizens, and were coming to express their opinion and disagreement with N.A.T.O. politics. They brought few anti- N.A.T.O. materials (that contained only public information like a visitors' guide, a legal guide…), cd's with documentary movies, buttons, patches, t-shirts, posters all on the subject of human rights.

After being held 19 hours without a reason they were illegally and forcefully deported against their own will. During these 19 hours at the Calafat border-control they resisted in a creative way, making and showing banners against border and state repression.

Romania calls itself a democratic country but cannot accept other opinions, then those dictated by the ruling power.

“forţele de ordine sunt pregătite să riposteze ferm împotriva oricăror mişcări de protest/ law and order forces are ready to respond fermly against any kind of protest movements”
Quote from the National Headquarters for N.A.T.O. Summit Security.

Today Romania showed again its fascist face.
