Date Sun, 21 Mar 2010 10:10:27 +0200

Here is a small report from yesterday.... Sofia, Bulgaria - On March 20, 2010 to the "Home for the temporary accommodation of foreigners" in the quarter Busmanci from 11 am to 13 pm held a peaceful protest rally against arbitrariness and repression against immigrants and in defense of their human rights. ---- Gathered about 40 people to protest against this antihumanno place for the immediate release of people in general and against the state policy against people detained there. The protest was organized by the Civil Initiative Committee and the Federation of Anarchists in Bulgaria. ---- Anarohsaprotiva attended by activists, lawyers, friends of the detainees at the center, bloggers, and citizens. Despite good weather and sent press releases - the place had a TV and 2 journalists.

None cameraman nor any other journalists. However, police
were in place, ie before the high walls of prison long before the
protesters. Video-duty cop was also on his post. People in prison have
been informed of protests and even in the kind of people stood in the
first bars. Dozens of hands with Victory sign to pass through the narrow
bars. Many of the people inside were tied hands and mouths with rags,
probably torn sheets. Many photos showed through the bars of their
children. Provesiha handmade banner with the inscription Busmantzi -
Freedom;. Throughout chanting - Guantanamo,Freedom, Human Rights we want
Freedom ... attempts to chanting in Bulgarian.

By the protesters was distributing leaflet on the problem and the
newspaper "Free Thought". Leaflet was read during the megaphone, for a
short talk and a former prisoner at center. Chants were in Bulgarian and
English slogans such as "There's no Illegal people," "*Papers for All or
No Papers at* All!" The freedom of movement is everybody's right, we are
here and we will fight, "Busmanci - Guantanamo", "No borders, no nations
stop deportation" and others.

It was a little parade down the street to jail. Police did not
intervene, and after half an hour the protesters withdrew, arguing
before the high closed that "we will be back, this is only the
beginning. People long waved through the bars and shouting "Thank you"
while the group away.

This was the first protest in Bulgaria for the rights of immigrants and
refugees ever....
