Abstract: In 2014, $1 billion disappeared from three of Moldova’s main banks creating a hole in the public finances equivalent to an eighth of the country’s GDP [1]. The bank fraud was the reason for Moldovan people to take to the streets and protest the low standard living and deep-rooted corruption in the government. This paper will look into the use of the new media in the case of the anti-government protests of Moldova through a mapping of studies on the importance of new media and protest participation.

Keywords: protest, Moldova, new media, participation.
