Bulgaria: 50,000 march through Sofia against mafioso totalitarian slide

The protest began gathering 7000 people but soon their numbers soared to 50,000. The protests before the Bulgarian Government have been going on for four days already. 

Protesters denounced the government as "mafia" and "trash", demanding their resignation. They also blocked a major road junction. 

The protests were triggered by the appointment as top chief of the secret services of the controversial capitalist and deputy Delyan Peevski, who controls most of the mass media in the Balcanic nation.

Peevski soon resigned but this has not calmed the popular anger, which perceives the government as a mafioso gang opposed to the popular interest.
