Thousands rally for protests in Romania against massive logging

Thousands Romanians have protested this Saturday against massive logging of forests, blaming politicians for allowing deforestation in the country. Protesters marched in Bucharest and major cities across the country, carrying banners saying “United we can save the forests!” and “Deforestation is a crime!”.
