Bulgarian Government Collapses Amid Mass Protests

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 21:11
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In a surprise move on Wednesday Prime Minister Borisov officially announced his resignation, saying, “I am unable to witness the blood on the streets. The people put us in power and today we give it back to them.”  His centrist GERB party will not participate in the formation of a new government which leaves many open questions about the political stability of the country.

Despite the cabinet resignation the violent clashes in Sofia have intensified late on Wednesday as protesters demand the exit of the entire political establishment. 

A 36-year-old man set himself on fire in the city of Varna where protests are demanding Mayor Kiril Yordanov’s resignation. Yordanov is currently serving his fourth consecutive term and has held the post since 1999.

What a day.  Not 1 but 2 corrupt governments fell. Thats a good days work for the people.  Mot people probably didnt even know they were having huge protests there but they were.  Overshadowed by the likes of Brazil, Turkey and Egypt but never the less suuccessful.  All 4 movements were victorious.  Love it.  -Mort

    Mort, it is ONLY successful if it is replaced by honorable people dedicated to serving for the betterment of their citizens and not people trying to usurp power for their own nefarious reasons.

    • My Sources Tell Me No

      Agreed, but its at least a step in the right direction.

    Meanwhile America sits on it’s butt as we are about to get run over by treasonous amnesty for tens of millions of illegal deabeats, which bill also triples the number of legals allowed in every year to millions. While 101 Million working age Americans have No Job. America, home of the ignorant.

    Not sure if the Egypt situation was staged or if it’s real, maybe some of both, but this looks legit.

    Borisov resigned in February, 2013. In May a new parliament was elected.

    Time for people to get the bankers and the ultra wealthy corporate pigs.
    They are flesh and blood and they die just as we do.

  • rev

    Sounds like the usual CIA manipulation to me. Everything is going according to plan.

    Bulgaria joins the European Union next year. Then their troubles REALLY start!

    • Mira

      Bulgaria joined European Union back in 2007.

      • HOLLYW__D

        I’m not sure about other parts of Europe but the Labour market restrictions are lifted this year in the UK for Bulgarians and Romanians

    In all of this crazy mess I have inner peace and joy knowing that my God is not worried or concerned. Either you have chosen to have eternal salvation or you have not.

    I beg you to find a Bible teaching church or friend if you are not 100% sure of your eternal salvation. Life is too short and eternity too long to be wrong about God, God’s Bible [], Jesus, or salvation.

    In the meantime: it is always right to do right and wrong to do wrong, It is never right to do wrong or wrong to do right!

    July 4th: Pagan Sun Worship Holiday Celebrating Independence from the Sun!
    July 4th is the day of the year planet Earth is furthest from the sun. When celebrating tonight, realize the Masonic Founding Fathers picked July 4th to celebrate ‘Independence Day’ – not to be free from Royal Monarch rule, but as a hidden celebration of Sun Worship.

    [link to]

    Just like December 25th is not the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, but instead the celebration of the ‘birth of the SUN’ as it rises it’s first degree into the sky after it’s 3 day rest after the Winter Solstice.

    Think how twisted everything is, considering the true birthday of Jesus Christ has been determined to be September 11th – a day that most people now look upon with fear, remorse and anger.

    Happy Independence Day my Brothers and Sisters! Enjoy it as if it were the last! See you all on the 27th!

    Disinfo! This is old news! Right now in the country there is an attempt for the newly elected government to be overthrown CIA-media-colorRevolution style. The government is far from “good” but the current protests are mostly business driven (hard media multipliers) with the intellectual support of Open Society and so on. The government is incompetent from the point of view of TZM but it is one of great expert potential and is in a very hard condition (from PR viewpoint) so they already made a lot of good for the social systems (good for the poor- 80% in BG are poor!) of the country. The former government (the one that this article is about) brought the country almost to a social revolution because it was only bout big business and nothing else (froze income- and there was hard inflation, taxed the small business- 100 000 firms closed doors so on..). 6 people set themselves on fire before the previous government resigned because they could see no way out of their extreme poverty! This all is packed in the finest propaganda war and corruption of every kind. Collapse – you can bet it is but it’s quite different story than this article up here.

    Whats to love about anarchy Mort? Democracy is anarchy…see Egypt. Bulgaria. Any others who attempt democracy will always end in failure and MOB rule.

    A common ground must be found and its called a Republic. Worked for us for almost 200yrs…almost.

    Give it 1-2 yrs and we will be hearing about Egypt and Bulgaria revolting again.

    The US on the other hand thinks its too cool for a republic, we are becoming communist…yea thats a loser too!

    Walking the line…and failing

    I just hope my constitutional minded family here can push back hard enough to win the day.


    GODSPEED PATRIOTS! :twisted:

    • My Sources Tell Me No

      I do agree up to a point. However for the first time at least since the sentient race before us got wiped out. Direct democracy is possible. We can communicate from all parts of our respective countries in seconds, the government can be slimmed down to basically admins of agencies directed by the vote of the populace on all issues.

      And with absolute transparency. The fact is if we stayed out of others affairs and our military protected our borders… “National Security” is just a convenient scape goat for not wanting to tell people what is really going on.

      Good people dont have to act in the shadows.

      Of course so much of the world is dumbed down by technocrat poisons. That i guess voting would have to be preceded by a current events test… and offered education for those who dont pass the test.

      Pretty hard for ignorant people to make a lasting, worthwhile opinion on a matter.

    A large group of Australians have taken a class action to the International Court of Justice asking one simple question – Where is our nationality? Our nationality holds our jurisdiction and our standing in a court. 13 years of work have established that the Australian govt is an american-registered corporation calling itself a government. Their day is now over. A return to our nationality will restore our ability to make the criminals answer to We the People for what they have done to us. The legal team have European & English legal teams examining the documentation because in every country that entered the EU – the people lost their nationality too. Restoring OUR nationality, will restore YOURS. Watch the crims run then.

    if they did not get the banekers out of the Nation and start using real money or at least credit issued without interest by thier own government……………………..then they accomplished nothing. Until the scourge called a private central bank is removed from the earth the common man will continue to be enslaved
