Dozens of young people gathered for a protest organized by the "Yes, Bulgaria!" political party in front of the capital's Berlin Hotel at the foot of Vitosha Mountain, where MP Delyan Peevski is believed to live.

The young people hoped to be invited for coffee and to ask the MP their questions. However, the hotel doors remained closed. In an interview with the Bulgarian National Radio, Alexandra Sterkova from the youth organization of "Yes, Bulgaria" described the action as "a continuation of the actions for getting the seized state back". The initiative comes after the mass protest at the beach near Rosenets Park on the Black Sea coast.

Delyan Peevski is a Bulgarian businessman, media mogul and politician. He has been an MP from the MRF party since 2009. In the summer of 2013, the election of Peevski as head of the State Agency for National Security provoked large-scale civic protests.
