European Parliament, European Commission
It's hard to believe, but the Romanian parliament is about to decriminalise corruption, by granting immunity to politicians who receive bribes and steal from the people -- unless we stop it now.

With already 28 MPs convicted or currently on trial on corruption charges -- the new parliamentary amendments could turn the country into a failed state. President Basescu has promised to challenge the law but key MPs are playing delaying tactics -- only a massive wave of citizen pressure now can ensure they ditch it for good.

Each passing minute hurts Romania’s democracy.
The challenges Romania has faced have been huge but steadily, and with increasing power, the people are fighting back to secure a fair, clean and democratic future for all Romanians. This is another battle that we can win together to bring us one step closer to the country we want.

Sign now and demand the Parliament to take immediate action to withdraw the amendments
