Demonstrations Over Corrupt Government, Police State in Bulgaria Continue

76th anniversary of the birth of Vasil Levski renews protesters


Scores of Bulgarians took to the streets of the capital Sofia on Friday, the 76th anniversary of the birth of the country's national hero, Vasil Levski.

For over a month daily rallies have been held to call for the resignation of the new government protesters accuse of being riddled with corruption.

"It's just unique, not only do I have the feeling I live in a police state but in a state which has absolutely nothing to do with its people," said one man taking part in the latest demonstrations.
