Pensioners across the country, union members, protested this Friday, March 26, asking to be granted the rights seniors are entitled to, Romanian news agency Agerpres informs.

Over 200 pensioners rallied in front of the Government building in Bucharest, angry over the value of the pension point and by the health co-payment.

National Federations representing the retired have submitted an amendment to the Pensions law on March 10. They requested for the pension point to represent 45% of the average salary and threatened to bring 500,000 retired persons on the streets if the normative act was going to be adopted in the form drafted by the Government.

Pensioners did not only rally in front of the Victoria Palace in Bucharest, but also across the country, taking their request to the local councils.
