Prime Minister Ludovic Orban’s message on the 33rd anniversary of the November 1987 anti-communist revolt in the city of Brasov

"Today it is 33 years since the spontaneous revolt of the workers on the industrial platform of Brasov against the communist dictatorship, on November 15, 1987.

After years of cold, darkness, hunger, false propaganda, the humiliation of an entire people and flagrant violations of fundamental rights and freedoms, the workers of Brasov had the courage, in that period of terror, to rise up against the Ceausescu regime. Their revolt was suppressed by the communist torturers, but it was a clear signal that the Romanians wanted to live in freedom and democracy, not in poverty and lies of a totalitarian state.

We praise the courage of the people of Brasov who mobilized in November 1987 in that gesture of revolt against a regime of terror that subjugated entire Romania. Let us never forget the ensuing abuses against the protesters, and their families, which destroyed many lives. I still believe that the most appropriate form of respect for all their suffering is for justice to be served in their case- justice which, unfortunately, has already been inadmissibly delayed for a long time in many of the cases against communist torturers.

Today, we enjoy the freedom and democracy that many generations before us did not have, although sometimes it seems that we do not value them enough. I am confident, however, in the democratic development of the Romanians and that together we will succeed in building for Romania that future for which the Brașov workers took to the streets in 1987. ”

 

Ludovic Orban,

Prime Minister of Romania
