Environmentalists organized a protest at the official opening of the 47th National Assembly. "Greenpeace" welcomed the MPs with a bottle of "Coal Water" to draw the attention of the new MPs to the negative effects of coal mining on waters in Bulgaria, Bozhidar Nikolov from the organization said.

Environmentalists distributed bottles of water from seven water sources, for which there is evidence of pollution. Among them are the rivers Struma, Maritsa, Ovcharitsa, Sazliyka, Tundzha, Razmetanitsa, as well as the Rozov Kladenets dam.

Protesters against the Covid vaccines also unfurled banners in front of parliament.
