Home, or gold?

rosia montana europa nostra_0This year’s Fân Fest, in the Transylvanian village of Rosia Montana, is on 15-18 August, so get your skates on.

The festival programme promises fun and serious pleasure, but there’s a battle being waged behind the scenes.  Big corporate interests want to mine the gold deposits below the village, but this will mean the place being destroyed and people losing their homes, families being evicted after generations.

What do you think? Have you heard about this? Take a long weekend, join the festival fun and lend your support to Rosia Montana.
