Bulgarian protesters have held a demonstration to condemn the government’s plan to allow the setting up of a NATO military command base on the country’s soil.
The demonstrators assembled in front of the presidency building in the capital city of Sofia on Sunday and later marched to the parliament, carrying banners that bore anti-EU and NATO messages.
“25 years of American democracy – robbery, ruin, destruction of the state,” read one banner.’
The demonstrators also called for the resignation of Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev.
