Following my heart and Mado‘s guidence,

For M.

She’s not ready to go

But she’s tied to.

The children will be looking for her eyes

to take their side on quarrels with the others.

The air will remain still for the time being

She’ll work some place else without really dreaming.

The books will await, computers will boot

exhibits will manage without her input.

The others are stronger and history’s with them,

They are stones but illusion makes them out of cream.

She got tired of working the work

while the others are talking her talk.

It’s painful for her but, can you see?

She’ll leave and we’ll be left with an  empty library.

“You’ll have the books, the others are guarding!”

We have them… up on 3 meter shelving.

Young people from Moldova are human beings too!!!

Police  from Moldova, European Union and International organizations seem not to care.

When police treatments like this one are happening to youth walking on the streets in Chisinau, journalists are intimidated and threaten and international voices keep their silence because Russia is watching… you start to wonder how developed is the developed world?
How efficient is the Internet in making silent voices heard?
How ready is the world to hear them?

Did you hear what are those young people are saying?


We are many, we are young, we are united! We will go all the way!
You cannot control us!
We are sick of suffering a totalitarian regime, supported by fear and terror! Communism is guilty of the biggest genocide in history!
We do not want to be lead by those who killed and deported our parents and grandparents!
We ask for President Voronin’s resignation and the outlawing of the criminal Communist Party!
We do not want extreme solutions – we ask for the President’s trial under the Constitution! We are doing no one’s politics, and are paid by no one!
We have no political color – we are pure and transparent!
Down with the communist magnates who send us to work on the black market and steal our money right from the Western Union office!
The luxury furniture and the hardwood floors in the Presidency and the Parliament are bought from money exchange fee!
We do not want to go to Italy, Portugal or Spain! We do not want to go to Canada or Moscow! We want to work and be paid in our own country!
We want a state grounded in respect and trust, not in fear and blackmail!
Down with the fear, Moldavians!

“There is nothing more noble than the public service.” says president Obama during his stay in Strasbourg.

You can clearly see he does not know the public and more than this  the public is taken by surprise by his way of behaving and talking.  I am sorry Obama hesitated to name more public services the youth can consider. I think he was not sure about what would qualify as public service and what not in Europe so he stayed in the safe zone. Also,  it is not his job to tell European youth this… However, I would have loved to hear him say something like volunteer or work in public libraries 🙂  That would have required at least a couple of minutes of thinking for our politicians to try to understand what these words mean.  Anyway president Obama is the first politician (that I have found)  so far that has this kind of motivating discourses for youth in Europe.

Very interesting…
