Around Hundred People with T-shirts of Bulgartabac Protest in Sofia


Around hundred people dressed in white T-shirts with the inscription "Bulgartabac" positioned themselves in front of the offices of the online editions of "Dnevnik" and "Capital" this morning and blocked Ivan Vazov Street as part of a protest in downtown Sofia this morning, say from Dnevnik.

The posters of the gathered people were titled "We are not smugglers", "We make our bread honestly" and "Ivo Prokopiev - the thief calls" Catch the thief ".

There was an enhanced police presence before the editions of Economedia.

The event lasted for about 20 minutes, after which the group continued its march to the parliament building.

The protest was organized after yesterday the company's management accused the co-founder of Dnevnik and Capital Ivo Prokopiev that the publications in the editions negatively affect the company and endanger the jobs of people working there.
