Bulgarians Stage Anti-Govt Rally for 68th Day
About 50 to 100 Bulgarians have taken once again to the streets of the capital Sofia Tuesday evening to demand the resignation of the country's government for a 68th day in a row in the record-long protest in the country.
The demonstrators against the Socialist-endorsed Cabinet of Prime Minister, Plamen Oresharski, gathered once again on Independence square in front of the Council of Ministers building.
As usual they held banners and national flags and shouted resignation.
The square and "Dondukov" boulevard were blocked for traffic. There was riot police presence.
Before the traffic blockade, passing drivers honked in demonstration of support.
The rally ended around 9 pm.
