Yesterday the police stopped protesters from blocking traffic along Trakia motorway. Nevertheless, protesters from Stara Zagora blocked the Stara Zagora-Haskovo road to traffic, BNR's Horizont channel reports. The blockade is now into its 17th hour, with protesters, among whom families with small children, demanding the resignation of the government, the prosecutor general, and early parliamentary elections. At this time the situation in the region remains calm.

A protest vehicle procession is taking place in Varna on the Black Sea, BNT reports.

The procession passed along the central streets of the city. The protesters say they are hoping that with their car horns they will wake up all people who are not interested in what is going on in the country.

Their demands are the same as the demands of the protesters in Sofia and elsewhere – resignation of the government and the prosecutor general, fair elections, a change of the entire political system.
