Extreme Right in Moldovan riots

Noua Dreapta Celtic crossBy Markus Salzmann (translated from the German original by me), on the recent violence in Moldova:

The rightist, anti communist organizations “Remember Moldova” and “Hyde Park” had called for the protest by the Internet and SMS. They have close links to the rich elite in Moldova. On Wednesday, Gabriel Stati, son of the multimillionaire Anatol Stati, was arrested in Kiew. He is suspected of having bankrolled rightist provocateurs of the violence.

Many demonstrators waved Rumanian flags, and shouted: “Long live Greater Rumania“. Some demonstrators shouted: “Bessarabia is Romanian soil” or “Unification with Bessarabia“. The extreme Right Noua Dreapta (New Right) was on the front line of the demonstration with their symbol, the Celtic cross. The right in the Moldovan republic has supported annexation by Rumania for a long time.

The Celtic cross is used as a symbol by neo nazi movements throughout the world, like the NPD in Germany and Nederlandse Volksunie in the Netherlands.

Update: authorized English translation of the Salzmann article: here.

Noua Dreapta are known for their anti gay violence.
