Prominent Bulgarian director Yavor Gardev has joined a long list of his colleagues supporting the antigovernment protests in the country.

After the end of a performance of Shakespeare's Hamlet, which he directed, Gardev has surprisingly stepped on the stage of the National Ivan Vazov Theater and has stated before the audience the following:

"I am Yavor Gardev. I want to say that we oppose the use of force against Bulgarian citizens and support the attempts to build a civil society."

The statement has been met by long-lasting, thundering applause.

Yavor Gardev is one of the most popular film and theater directors of the younger generation of Bulgarian intellectuals, and is the winner of many international and local awards.

Many other popular figures from filmmaking and theater circles have also voiced support for the protests and demands for the resignation of the Socialist-led government.
