      Minor Police Clashes in Bulgaria during Anti-Capitalist May Day Rally
      Society
      May 1, 2009, Friday

      A couple of hundred young anarchists staged a May Day (May 1, Labor Day)
      rally on Garibaldi Square in Sofia leading to minor clashes with police.

      The far-left and anarchist-minded youth waved red and black flags and
      shouted anti-capitalist slogans in the downtown of Bulgaria's capital.

      The organizers of the protest rally are from the May 1 Action Committee.
      They have said that people from various leftist and anarchist groups
      were partaking in the protest but they did not want to mention them as
      it was the May Day holiday that was important.

      The organizers have told the Bulgarian BGNES news agency that only in
      December 2008 15 000 Bulgarian workers had been laid off, and that
      another 60 000-80 000 workers would be made redundant by mid 2009.

      They have also pointed out that half of all workers in Bulgaria's
      textile industry, or some 75 000 people, are in danger of becoming
      unemployed.

      "Bulgarian Socialist Party is a capitalist party which does not protect
      the rights of the laborers", the organizers have pointed out regarding
      the largest party in Bulgaria's ruling three-way coalition.

      The anti-capitalist May Day rally in Sofia was guarded by heavily armed
      police and gendarmerie units.

      there only exists one danger -- that workers succeed in
      speaking to each other about their condition and their
      aspirations _without intermediaries_."
