„Hear a just cause, O Lord, attend to my cry;
Give ear to my prayer which is not from deceitful lips.
Let my vindication come from Your presence;
Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright”
Book of Psalms, Psalm 17, 1st and 2nd Verse
A crowd consisting of about 25 000 protesters coming from all Transylvanian counties has expressed its disagreement with the injustice and its solidarity with those fighting for justice in Sf. Gheorghe, on September the 1st, on the “Day of the Truth”. The representatives of the historic churches and of the political organizations, as well as the individuals taking the floor asserted together in their protesting speeches, prayers and declarations, that the ethnic Hungarian community will stand up for its rightful properties, the Székely Mikó High School Building having a symbolic meaning in this endeavor. The protest has been organized by the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania and the Transylvanian Calvinist Diocese.
