Bulgarians protesters enter 36th day in a row

Thousands of Bulgarians have taken once again to the streets of the capital Sofia to demand the resignation of the country’s government for a 36th day in a row.

Close to 2 000 are reported to be already on Independence square in front of the Council of Ministers building.

Some media report lower attendance, compared to previous evenings, others insist the Interior Ministry’s official data purposely lists fewer people than the real number.

Some of the protesters have decided to show their resolution by dancing the traditional Bulgarian folk dance “horo” under the motto: “Once you start dancing, you cannot let go.”

Many are waiving the national flag and banners. People are blowing whistles, hissing, and shouting “resignation.”
