To put it simply, the Romanian government wants to silence organisations working on democracy, anti-corruption and the rule of law.
There are two incredibly concerning bills currently on the table. The most recent requires organisations to report within 15 days the names and personal data of new people they helped. The other bill requires them to publish the names of all their donors and publish a full financial report twice a year.
Organisations will simply drown under paperwork. If they do not comply, they will be closed down. Additionally, many people will not dare to ask them for help - or give them money - for fear of retaliation.
