At least 5,000 members of the Federation of Romanian Transport Operators are expected to demonstrate on Friday, February 22, in Bucharest's Victory Square. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near the protest site.
The Federation of Romanian Transport Operators is protesting rising fuel duties and alleged illegal transport operators active in the country. The protesters hope to spur a more active regulatory stance on the part of the national government.
Individuals in Bucharest are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, budget additional time to travel around protest sites, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
