Life's a beach, anti-government protests in Bulgaria enter 47th day

In Bulgaria, the protest decor changes daily, but the government they wish to topple remains after almost 50 days of demos. As MPs voted a summer recess, the parliament square went coastal. The motto: since they turned parliament into a circus, we are turning the blockade into a beach party.

“I think the end will come very soon in the autumn and it will be positive – this government will go down,” explained Nick Staikov, founder of the Protesters’ news/PR agency.
