Commenting article: 300 Bulgarians Join Tomato Rally against Rulers

Over 300 Bulgarians have gathered in front of the Parliament in downtown Sofia to protest against the widespread political corruption and the recent arrest of a dissident.

The protest is in support of Bulgarian dissident, poet and publicist, Nikolay Kolev Bosiya (The Barefooted), who was recently arrested by nearly 40 police officers for throwing a tomato at the Parliament as an act of protest against the rampant corruption in the country.

Despite a heavy police presence, the rally has proceded peacefully.

England introduced the "Bloody Mary".

Bulgaria introduced the "Bulgarian Tomato Revolution".

I prefer a little Spice in my "Bulgarian Tomato Revolution".

Tabasco is not the answer but Bulgarian Old Spice mixed with gypsy spice has a lot of BANG! POW!.

The government must wake up, yesterday it was 300 demonstrators, tomorrow it could be 3000 (or 30,000). Our (elected) leaders must do, and be seen to do, much more against OC and corruption.

All the Poets and Artist must gather together to purify the Halls of Justice and Legislative Branches of the Republic of Bulgaria using the fine Rose Oils of Bulgaria.

After the cleaning we toast with our Tomato Revolution Drink smothered with Bulgarian Spice and Gypsy intrigue that opens ones Bulgarian heart with passion.

Viva Bulgaria!

On a Holiday Note with Spirit, we need to ask ourselves who can throw the first Tomato or Stone.

Is it the Poets or Artists or Public?

Is it the Ministry of Interior or Justice or President or Prime Minister or Legislative Branch?

We need one person to say, I am sorry for my deeds and let us begin cleaning the crust off the walls of justice and human rights.

Our Church is worried about the morals of bi-sexual marriages and I am worried about my Dignity and Quality of Life.

My answers will be in a glass of Medovina, spiked with Tomato Juice and Old Bulgarian Spice and dream as a gypsy that has no political structure or ills.
