Young people gathered to protest in downtown Sofia, condemning racism in the country and around the world. The event was peaceful, and one of the reasons for it was the case of the murder of a black man by a police officer in the United States. "I can't breathe" was chanted by all citizens at the protest in memory of George Floyd, who died in the US during a police arrest. 

The demonstrators in Sofia believe there are systematic acts of racism in society, the manifestations of which violate the quality of life of all people.
