strikes, Sofia: 2 reviews and 3 photos

by hekate

During the economical crises in 1996 strakes were quite a frequent event.

It still happens but very rarely. Now the labour unions had organised a couple of strikes to show that people are not happy with the social policy of the state.

So, I took this picture 3 days ago. I just heard the noise while I was sitting in the office. I opened my window and saw these people gathered in front of the Ministry of Justice. Not a very big crowd and there was enough policy force to secure the place.

In case that you ever come across to such event just walk around of the crowd, nothing will happen to you. Just do not try to provoke them. For example, taking pics from a close distance is not a good idea.
