Protest Against Refugee Camp In Telish To Continue Until ‘Victory’
Residents of Bulgarian village Telish vow to take ‘extreme actions’ in order to reach their goal - cancellation of the plan for a refugee shelter in the village.
People are ready to ‘go to the extremes’ and do whatever it takes in order to prevent the opening of a refugee camp in the village a representative of the protesters said in front of bTV.
Current unrest in Telish was caused by the announced Bulgarian government ‘ plan for the opening of a refugee shelter of a closed type in an ex-military base in the village.
Refugees should be accommodated in non-residential areas, far from populated settlements and in isolation, according to a representative of the protesting people, reports bTV.
Protesters vow to continue until ‘victory’ – i.e. an official decision by the government to cease any work on the proposed shelter, informs bTV.
Local people have built a barricade that blocks a small local road from Telish to the former military base, in order to prevent work on transforming part of the base's building into a camp for housing of refugees.
