On the 27th day of anti-government protests in Sofia, three key intersections in the center of the city remain blocked by tent camps. A BNR reporter said that strong winds had blown away part of the camp in front of the Council of Ministers and protesters were setting their facilities again.

In Varna, a tent camp in front of the Municipality blocked key crossroads and diverted 6 lines of public transport. The blockade provoked discontent of passers-by, BNR reported.

The blockade of the road Stara Zagora - Haskovo continues for the fifth day. About 20 people spent the night in the tent camp near the Stara Zagora airport and continue to insist that they should be allowed to protest on the Trakia highway.
