Bucharest, Romania РRomania has seen an unprecedented turnout of protesters demanding that the rule of law be respected by their own government. For five days in a row, Romanians broke post-communist records in attending rallies and holding politicians to account.

Among them are Simona, 34, and Claudiu Racovita, 33, parents of two, who have taken to the streets in protest  each day since the demonstrations began.

“I want my children to live in this country, to have a future here”, Simona says. “It’s for them that we go to protest every day.”
