This week will address numerous significant issues. Not just whether the change will continue, but whether there will be a decisive battle with the corruption and the oligarchy that wants to regain control of the state, whether judicial reform will continue, whether there will be the rule of law, whether we will have our true perspective in Europe”. 

One of the protest organisers cited, “Bulgaria today is at a crossroads, and it depends on us which way we will take. We will choose democracy or authoritarianism, freedom or obedience, courage or fear. We want to live in a state governed by the rule of law. We want the battle against corruption to continue. We want transparency & political and economic independence. We want a decent future as part of Europe“.
