Save Roșia Montană is before anything else, your right to free speech. We assembled a small kit of civic noncompliance so that you can fully understand and enjoy exercising your civic right to participate to public manifestations and protests for Roșia Montană.
If you want to start a new public manifestation or to be a part of one, remember to show appreciation and to cherish your right to free assembling, earned also in the street by previous generations and to celebrate it as such. Making noise is essential and the feeling of solidarity is transmitted through the rhythmic noise made by plastic bottles full with coins and by the endless music made by improvised drums, whistles and vuzuzela. The art of protesting cannot be taught, but lived as a part of a protesting group.
As a sign of respect to the fight for freedom that the people from Roșia Montană, initiators of Save Roșia Montană campaign, started 14 years ago we invite you to:
- be ready to answer in a short, polite and concise manner to questions that other people or the press might ask you; come well equipped with strong arguments that you can find right here, on this site .
- if you are the target of a violent aggression from a member of the security forces: sit down, retreat, ask to be treated justly. The protests must be peaceful, we don’t encourage violence!
- don’t reply to instigations of those who try to discredit the manifestation; we must try to overcome tense moments by shouting all together “without violence, without violence!”
- do not consume alcoholic beverages and do not bring water in bottles still labeled as alcoholic beverages.
