The 'Poison Trio' anti-government activists have called on supporters to gather nationwide on Friday, October 16, on the 100th day of nationwide demonstrations calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov following allegations of corruption. Exact details of protest timings and locations are yet to be announced; however, previous demonstrations in Sofia have been held at the National Assembly building.
Similar demonstrations have occurred daily across the country and will likely continue. A heightened security presence and associated disruptions to transportation and business should be expected. Previous protests have seen clashes erupt between security forces and demonstrators.
Those in Bulgaria are advised to monitor developments, avoid protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
