Bulgarians in 30 Cities to Stage Anti-Govt Protests on Dec 26
Bulgarians in 30 cities in the country and abroad are staging anti-government rallies on December 26.
The protests are to take place in Sofia, Stara Zagora, Shumen, Blagoevgrad, Dobrich, Athens, Hamburg, London, Budapest, Munich, Monreal, etc.
The protests against the socialist-led government, which have been going on for over six months, are to be backed by Bulgarians who came back for the Christmas and New Year holidays, according to reports of dnevnik.bg.
The demonstrations are once again organized via Facebook.
The rally in Sofia starts at 3 pm in front of the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB) HQ.
The protests seeking the resignation of the Cabinet of Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski started on June 14 in response to the scandalous appointment of media mogul Delyan Peevski as Chair of the State Agency for National Security (DANS).
The rallies continue, despite the fact that the number of protesters has decreased substantially.
In early October, students in a number of cities across Bulgaria started staging sit-ins at universities. The protesting students staged partial or full blockades at university buildings, demanding the resignation of the socialist-led coalition government, the dissolution of Parliament and early elections.
