It’s been extremely difficult for me to concentrate and come back to my blog this week. All I’m doing lately apart from working is getting extremely mad and upset about the current situation in my home country Bulgaria.
Here are a few facts…
They’ve been 5 months of constant protests in Bulgaria
You most probably haven’t even heart about it, because it’s not in the political interests of many for this to get widely spread. Despite the fear that lots of EU politicians want you to believe, Bulgarians don’t want to come to your country and live on your benefits. They want to have a better life in their own country.
Despite the huge amount of Bulgarians from all political, cultural, race and age groups protesting, the TV news keep saying they are only a few thousand of people.
The majority of protesters want mafia-free and corruption-free government, therefor they are asking for new election system which will make fake voting impossible and will give fair rules to new parties. Conveniently, the current government uses its paid TV to tell the nation that the protesters get paid by their political opponents.
The government uses every possible way to divide the nation into groups and make them hate each other. The 5 months protests have been peaceful, creative yet bold.
The government spits on democracy and human rights to walk freely, protest and have opinion by using brutal police force to beat peaceful protesters, collect their person ID data for no legal reason.
In one of his latest speeches the PM said he’s going to fire every civil servant who’s attending political protests. In the same time the coalition in power organizes an anti-protest protest with money from the tax-payers, bringing poor citizens and old pensioners from the country side to the capital city via buses and trains. Most of them have no idea what they’re going there for, but are getting paid 20 BGN (£8) for the day, given free sandwiches and posters to hold. The PM was proudly walking on the first line of his own manifestation.
Most people say that when the students starts protesting, than it’s serious. They are those young people which are hope and the future of a nation and they are capable of changing the history.
Rather than having police at the Bulgarian border and throughout the country, it’s all concentrated in the capital to protect the parliament with force. In the same time Syrian refugees which thought they’re escaping to the nearest European country have ended up closet in Bulgaria in worse than prison cells with inhumane conditions. The institution responsible for helping them, is actually telling them not to protest otherwise they will make it even harder for them.
This government is an absolute example of what happens when you decide not to vote. When the majority of a nation decides to get out of the system, because no political party actually things of them people, the system will have absolutely no obligation to care about the people at all. They will find a way to get into power and you won’t like it.
It’s corruption. It’s sad. It’s mafia that rules the country. After all the fails which they made trying to turn democracy into dictatorship, it’s time for this government to RESIGN!
