More protests in Romania


In Romania the government’s unpopular austerity measures are leading to more calls for it to stand down.
The latest demonstration saw teachers and education workers take to the streets.
In July, the government cut public sector wages by 25 percent. There have since been a series of angry demonstrations. The teachers chose World Teachers’ Day for their protest, claiming they have nothing to celebrate.
Romania was given 20 billion euros in bailout loans from the IMF, EU and World Bank in 2009.
Part of the money went to pay state wages and pensions.
