The 104th day of protests with demands for the resignations of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and the entire government, as well as Chief Prosecutor Ivan Geshev, is scheduled for tonight in downtown Sofia.

During last night's protest against the status quo, eggs and tomatoes were thrown at the building of the Ministry of Defence. The reason for this was the remark of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Krassimir Karakachanov to the protester "Do you think you represent the Bulgarian people?!".
"Yes, Karakachanov, each of us is the people!", replied lawyer Nikolay Hadjigenov from the initiators of the protests of the so-called Toxic Trio. The protesters also carried toy airplanes, referring to the deal for the purchase of F-16 fighters.
Traditionally, the Eagle Bridge was blocked for about an hour, BNR reported.
