Archives: Protest / Mineriada (1990-1999)


Mineriad (Romanian: Mineriadă) is the term used to name any of the successive interventions of miners in Bucharest during the period of January 1990 to February 1999 in the post-1989 Romanian Revolution. These interventions were generally seen as aimed at wrestling policy changes or simply material advantages from the current political power. Jiu Valley coal miners had staged political protests before, from the Lupeni Strike of 1929 to the Jiu Valley miners’ strike of 1977, and minor protests after 1999.
