by Ioan Pupila 11 months ago

Hundreds protested in Athens on Sunday in national solidarity with Greek soldiers detained by Turkey after crossing the border back in March, 2018. The soldiers were detained after tresspassing into Turkey in bad weather in a heavily forested frontier region. On grounds of attempted military espionage and entering a prohibited military zone, Turkish authorities kept them in custody since March 2nd.More than two moths since the detention started, Greek civil society in Athens decided to stand for their compatriots and demanded Turkey to immediately release the soldiers. Eleni Paroglou documented the rally in photos for IndieFrame:Holding the Greek flag in Syntagma, Athens | Get Photo Rights |Demonstrator with walking stick, Orthodox cross and 'Hellas' scarf | Get Photo Rights | Yo

Romania's anti-corruption fight in IndieFrame photos from May 12th

by Ioan Pupila 11 months ago

Though the number of protesters decreased since February 2017 - largest demo after country's anti-communist Revolution, gathering 500K in the streets - the #Rezist anti-corruption citizen movement gathered few thousands in Bucharest and Timisoara this Saturday, 12.05.2018. Same resolutions as last year are being demanded, which - in protestor's perspective - means not much has been changed. In their opinion, the majority Government coalition PSD-ALDE is to blame for most corruption issues in the country, seting country's course against EU values and trying to modify Justice Laws to their benefits. IndieFrame reporters have been in both capital city Bucharest and Timisoara and uploaded photos on the topic:Protestors show passengers cardboard handcuffs with national flag at Buchare
