OUG 13

Romania, January 2017 – hundreds of thousands of people took to the street to protest an emergency ordinance meant to help corrupt politicians escape justice. On February 5th, the protest reached the peak when more than 600.000 people protested in the country (even if on the same day before, the government announced the abolition of the ordinance), making it the largest protest in Romania’s history.

The images in this story were made in Timișoara, western Romania. Some of them were published in the book “Protest – A brief visual history of the Romanian protests from the last 10 years” by Documentaria.ro.
