"Occupy Moldova"

There's a protest happening in Moldova right now, mostly in Chișinău, similar to the "Occupy" movements that happened in The States a few years ago. They're protesting the recent bank scandal where the equivalent of over a BILLION dollars just vanished! That's billion with a "B" and that's in dollars, not Moldovan lei. So Moldovans have set up tents outside of the parliament building demanding justice. This photo was taken a couple months ago, but the movement has grown since then and PCVs have been on lockdown from going to Chișinău on the weekends just in case it becomes violent. 

People are representing their various villages. Florești is a raion (similar to a county)  near my raion of Soroca.
