Protests against the Bulgarian Forestry Act – photos and video

chop

The Bulgarian Parliament passed definitively the controversial Forestry Act, allowing construction of ski tracks and lifts without changing the status of the land.

Several hundred activists clashed with police and blocked traffic in the centre of the capital Sofia. Participants in the protest are young people who want nature, we don’t want concrete mountains.

Some photos from the second day of protests (14.04.2012), tonight (16.06.2012) is the fourth day in a row.

Thanks to Dimo Dimov for the photos, he is the author.

After the 106 photos there are few videos.
