For the 32nd evening in a row, protesting Bulgarians gather in the so-called “triangle of power” downtown Sofia to demand the resignations of the cabinet and the prosecutor general.

Earlier today, a protest rally took place to the Kalotina border checkpoint on the Bulgarian-Serbian border under the slogan "Protest march for the resignation of the government of Boyko Borissov." Drivers tried to block the road, but police stopped them near Slivnitsa - not far from the capital city, because of driving at a slow speed and causing kilometers of congestion. The rally still managed to reach the border.

Another protest march - this time on bicycles, started from Blagoevgrad to the Kulata border checkpoint on the border with Greece.
