Bulgarian Meteorologists Protest on Thursday
Bulgarian Meteorologists are protesting on Thursday - June 21st, the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology reports.
"After two months of the beginning of our quiet and peaceful protest, there is no solution to the problem, but instead, attempts have been made to manipulate and discredit our position, so on 21.06.2018 from 9.00 am to 10.30 pm at the central building of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, we, the workers at the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology (NIMH), will conduct a protest-rally warning, "the meteorologists say. Their protest is against the intentional attempt of the governing bodies of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences to liquidate the activity of NIMH as the National Hydrometeorological Service of the Republic of Bulgaria by leaving them without the necessary minimum means to fulfill their obligations.
NIMH has 2 requests. One is "the Vice-President of BAS Art. Konstantin Hadjivanov to take responsibility for the results of the criteria for the allocation of the budget subsidy of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences for 2018 and to withdraw from the BAS leadership" the other - "the governing bodies of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences to take responsibility for their decisions on the allocation of funds of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences for 2018". The meteorologists insist that by 2.07.2018 the management of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences should provide to NIMH the needed BGN 1 145 000 for the provision of its activity as National Hydrometeorological Service of Bulgaria in 2018 from the available funds in the Development account of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
