Romanian gendarmes try to stop protesters against a Canadian gold mining project from approaching the Romanian Presidency headquarters during a flash mob in Bucharest, Romania, Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2011. Romania's president Traian Basescu said Monday he supports a controversial gold mining project in western Transylvania, as opponents said it could cause an environmental disaster. Basescu said during a visit to the proposed site that the investment by Canada's Rosia Montana Gold Corp. would bring jobs. The site is expected to contain 300 tons of gold and 1,600 tons of silver.
