"More than 1,000 demonstrators jeered government austerity measures in downtown Bucharest on Monday as Romania's prime minister warned that violent clashes like those that left 59 injured over the weekend could jeopardize stability and economic growth. Protesters who gathered in freezing temperatures for a fifth day of demonstrations chanted 'Freedom!' and held banners saying 'Hunger and poverty have gripped Romania!' They waved flags with the center ripped out, a symbol of the 1989 uprising against former Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu." (01/16/12)
