Last Sunday, protesters outside the president's office in Kiev tried to break the line of riot police guarding the building by charging them with a bulldozer.
This Sunday the demonstrators pulled down and decapitated the statue of Lenin in central Kiev.
These are just some of the breaking news headlines coming from Kiev the days. This is what I call a revolution or at least a revolution in the making.
I don't believe in the so-called 'tender revolutions'. They have been devised to replace the real revolution and mislead ordinary people that something is happening, changing. It takes some blood shedding to bring a country to the brink of revolution – it has been like that for ages and it will be like that in the future, no matter whether we like it or not.
But, please, don't take this as a call for violence or new wave of protests. Truth is, Bulgaria has never experienced a real revolution. Bulgaria has experienced only “tender” revolutions and it is a small wonder that we are facing “tough” problems.
No matter how different opinions of Bulgaria's summer protests are, there is one attribute nobody can deny them – creative....
Unfortunately there is no one to replace the mafia-backed government. Not saying that the current government shouldn't step down by somebody should be ready to take the stand and offer an alternative policy and actually, for a change, practice what they preach instead of just throwing empty promises around.
There is another factor though, when it comes to Ukraine the International community (which is a euphemism for Western Europe and America) actually cares about the protestors because they are in their favor, hence they offer political, diplomatic and maybe even in the future military support, whereas when it comes to Bulgaria they couldn't care less because the current government does whatever they tell it to, doesn't get in the way of their interests hence why should they even bother mentioning the protests, you here Ukraine in all the news agencies but you won't here Bulgaria anywhere.
The authors comment 'the protestors look like bleating sheep' very insightful but the sheep would be smart enough to have an agenda, the protestors have no agenda so even their tender protests will fail because they are completely pointless.
We do not need violence in Bulgaria, so far the violence has been managed in a reasonable way by the Police.
I think the bleating sheep are getting tired of their pointless protest.
