Bulgarian Students' Anti-Govt Occupation Officially Over
Students protesting against Bulgaria’s embattled Socialist-led government have decided to end the occupation of the ceremonial hall of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski.”
The decision was made by vote late on Monday.
Representatives of the student protest movement are to reveal more details at a press conference scheduled for 11 am EET Tuesday.
Protesters against the cabinet of PM Plamen Oresharski first walked out, June 14, after the appointment of shady media mogul Delyan Peevski for head of the powerful State Agency for National Security.
The rallies attracted dozens of thousands of anti-corruption protesters for a number of days.
Peevski's reinstatement as MP after his resignation from the Security Agency revived the protest movement and provoked a student occupation at Sofia University .
The "college" protests began when students occupied Lecture Hall 272, the largest teaching room of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski", on October 22.”Other universities soon followed suit.
The occupation at Sofia University was eased in November and only a partial blockade of the building's ceremonial hall remained. -
