>News from Bulgaria – June 2010

Posted on June 29, 2010



01.06.2010 Very active day. Workers from two different companies – “Ledenika” and “Agrolesproject” went ot strike. Also there was a demonstration in Sofia in solidarity with people of Gaza.

06.06.2010 New protest in front of the Center for Detention of Immigrants. Anarchists, communists, liberals, ex-detainees of the Center demanded freedom for all people locked inside. Before the protest a group of at least 15 neo-nazis attacked much smaller group of 4 left radicals and beat them very seriously. Once again police showed its tolerance to the nazis as only 8 were arrested, two of them were released soon and maybe other 6 will be released too. Some days later nazis beat a group of gypsies.

10.06.2010 A group of activists blocked a main road in Sofia as a protest against nazi attacks. Somehow fascists learned about the planned direct action and make threats in internet. Despite their threats and the fact that there was no police at the begining of the action nazis did not attack. It is not a surprise – fascists rats prefer to attack only much smaller groups and not to confront equal to their size group of left radicals. After around 30 minutes police came and slowly managed to push the protestors outside the road.

16.06.2010 A 23-yours old man beat an inspector from a water supply company in the village of Kuklen. Some days earlier in the city of Bankia another man opened fire against inspectors from a electricity supply company. Companies providing electricity, water, natural gas and so on apply very high taxes and people hate them. That is why a lot of people illegally connect to the power grid and use electricity without paying.

19.06.2010 A young man (around 20-25 years old) robbed a shop armed with an axe. Police is still looking for him.
