Disgruntled Bulgarians are organizing themselves on social networks to stage a "Tomato Revolution."
The demonstration is going to take place Saturday in support of Bulgarian dissident, poet and publicist, Nikolay Kolev Bosiya (The Barefooted), who may face up to two years behind bars for throwing a tomato at the Parliament as an act of protest against the rampant corruption in the country.
Bosiya recently sent a letter to the Parliament, the President, the Prime Minister, the Supreme Judicial Council, the Bulgarian National Television and the Bulgarian National Radio, threatening to throw tomatoes at their buildings, as he deemed them responsible for the widespread corruption, crime and lack of media freedom in Bulgaria....
In this world we have the "American Dream", we need the Bulgarian Dream even if it takes tomatos to establish DIGNITY with QUALITY OF LIFE that brings forth TRANSPARENCY through SOCIAL ORDER.
A Tomato is a passive form of resistance while the Government would like to arrest a citizen and his Bulgarian Tomato.
It seems the Government of Bulgaria will have a red face in shame at the end of this ordeal.
Once upon a time their was a Bulgarian Poet who threw a tomato at the Wall of Justice in Sofia,
Some countries have guns, others, human bombs, others Star Wars, grenades but Sofia has Tomatos,
As we can clean the organic tomatos off the Wall of Justice in Sofia, it will become transparent and crystal,
Now I walk the streets of Sofia with my bag of tomatos and a piece of Bulgarian Feta Cheese,
I fear that my tomato and cheese will be seized and I will be arrested without hearing the words of our Bulgarian Poet!l
