ROMANIAN PROTESTS: THE VOICE OF YOUNG PEOPLE 

Since last year, Romanian people are taking to the streets to protest against the government which aims to decriminalise certain crimes, namely crime of high-level corruption. The Romanian youth has been at the core of the protests: students, journalists, activists, politicians and creatives played a crucial role in the anti-corruption movement. In this video two Romanian FutureLab Europe participants, Alin Gabriel Gramescu and David Timis, interview these young people to understand their motivations and purposes in taking part in the protests.
