Bucharest tragedy culminates in revolution

More than 20,000 people protested against the government in Bucharest on Tuesday evening, calling for direct action to be taken after a disastrous fire in one of the city's nightclubs. Journalist Marian Sultanoiu of the web portal Gândul is deeply moved: "This evening's protest was a revolution on the part of decency and the European youth: a revolution born from the death of people their own age - and as a result of lethal corruption. These deaths, this frightful collective cremation were the straw that broke the camel's back. From now on there can be no turning back. This is the cleanest, truest and most impressive insurgence I have ever witnessed. It is filled with decency and sincerity. ... Its power makes you tremble. It's like life awaking from death."
