Protesters march and hold banners during the eighth day of demonstrations in Bucharest against the Rosia Montana Gold Corporation (RMGC), a Canadian gold mine project using cyanide, on September 8, 2013. More than 15,000 Romanian protesters took to the streets for the eighth straight day Sunday to protest against plans by a Canadian company to open Europe's largest goldmine in a Transylvanian village. Canadian company Gabriel Resources hopes to extract 300 tons of gold using thousands of tons of cyanide in Rosia Montana, a picturesque village in the Carpathian mountains. The government recently adopted a bill clearing the way for the open cast mine. AFP PHOTO / DANIEL MIHAILESCU (Photo credit should read DANIEL MIHAILESCU/AFP/Getty Images)
