The new Romanian government of the right forces – the National Liberal Party, the Alliance 2020 (Save Romania Union and Plus) and the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romanians declared in its programme willingness to allocate 6% of GDP for health, 6% of GDP for education and 1% of GDP for research. These three promises copy important points from the Cluj Declaration – a document of the Romanian civil society, accepted in November 2014 on the central square in Cluj-Napoca as part of the protests that preceded the election of Klaus Iohannis in his first term as a president. Mihai Goţiu, then coordinator of the site “Clean Romania”, declared before this blog in 2016 that the Cluj Declaration remains a programme of the civil society and it is being advanced by the NGO sector.

Activistul Rostislav Kandilarov a solicitat  organizaţiilor  politice şi cetăţeneşti, solidare cu demonstraţiile din oraşul dunărean,  sprijinirea unui proiect de lege similar în Bulgaria

Vladimir Mitev

Organizaţiile politice şi cetăţeneşti din Bulgaria trebuie să ia exemplu legea mirosurilor implementată în țara vecină şi să promoveze o lege similară în Bulgaria, care ar permite cetăţenilor să atace în instanță mirosurile fără a fi necesar că Inspecţia Regională a Mediului şi a Apelor să stabilească dacă există o poluare a aerului. Aceasta este opinia ecoactivistului Rostislav Kandilarov, exprimată în cadrul  eco-protestului de amploare ce s-a desfășurat la Ruse, în data de 24 septembrie 2020.
