Bulgaria: New Protest Against Shale Gas Planned

A new protest is being planned for Nov. 26 in Sofia, part of a series of protests against Chevron's shale gas extraction in northeast Bulgaria. On Nov. 20, nearly 500 people attended a rally in the coastal city of Varna, which didn't receive adequate media coverage. Several Facebook groups have been created: Sofia: BULGARIA can count on us – not shale gas! [bg, 740 members], We are against a Bulgarian Chernobyl – shale gas extraction [bg, 30,815 members].
