Citizens will go out in protest tonight in the Black Sea city of Burgas to voice their dissatisfaction with a new construction in the protected area of Alepu on the Black Sea coast. The construction is supposedly a retaining wall according to the official reports, yet it very much resembles the construction site of a hotel visually and also according to opinions of both citizens and experts. 
The demonstration with the motto "Seaside Without Concrete" will take place in front of the city's Regional Directorate for Construction Supervision, which protesters say is directly responsible for both the current case in Alepu and other concrete structures along the Black Sea coast.
