250 22.10.2016 Инфо

Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Sofia, to protest against the government's policy on refugees, Friday.
The rally was organised by nationalist group, National Resistance. Protesters held banners reading "Wake up, Bulgarians! Don't screw up our future as well! It's time!" and "Merkel has to go."
National Resistance member, Daniel Ferdinandov, addressed the crowds at the end of the rally, pointing out the corruption involved in the proposed immigration policies: "There are already plans for poor municipalities, where dull mayors are ready to accept those refugees in Bulgaria for some Euros, shekel, ruble or some other foreign currency."
There was a heavy police presence before, during and after the protest. No arrests were reported. Similar events were held in several other cities in Bulgaria also on Friday.
