Protestors will rally in Bulgaria's capital city Sofia against war on Iraq February 9. This is the second time that Bulgarian pacifists from different organizations unite to protest over the looming US-led war. Following a rally staged by more than five-hundred people on January 22, this time the anti-war organizations will throw a concert in support of peaceful resolution of the Iraqi crisis. Third rally is planned for February 15.
