2009-03-13/14:36/ Chisinau (IPN) The incident happened while the president of the organization was delivering a speech. Several unknowns threw a bottle of paint on the protesters and ran away.

The AMN considers the event was orchestrated by the ruling party.

"They are like the current Communist governors - mancourts for which the democracy, honor and dignity mean nothing," said Leonid Bujor, candidate on behalf of the Moldova Noastra Alliance.

Bujor said that among the young persons he recognized several instigators that took part in a protest staged in front of the Government a week ago. "The father of one of them is the vise president of a Chisinau field organization of the Commu nist Party," Bujor said.

The protesters dispersed after 15 minutes during which they chanted: ‘Down with the Communists', ‘Down with the Reds'.
