Bulgaria: Don't Dismantle the Train Services!

Bulgarian blog “Работнически глас” (Worker's Voice) publishes [bg] a few photographs of a protest on Sofia's Central Railway Station. Held on August 9, this flashmob gathered around 100 people who chained a “human train” by standing one behind another. This “train” travelled inside the station while the protesters were calling for the end of the privatization procedure that the National Train Services is engaged in. As the protesters explained [bg], “the National Train Services belong to the people. Nobody has asked us whether we agree with them being privatized, so we want this process to stop now.”
