The first action against the gay movement is organized by the Alfa Culture Association and will be held on Friday, at 5pm with some 1,000 people expected to join in, in a march from the George Enescu Square to Unirii Square.
The second action of the sort will be organized by the New Right Association and will be held on Saturday, at 1pm where 300 people are expected. They will be taking the same route as the previous association.
Over 700 police officers will be deployed on the streets to ensure that the events go on peacefully for the three actions on Friday and Saturday. All previous gay parades were marked by violent incidents against the participants.
