Bulgaria | Protests against ski development in Pirin NP grow, spread to cities outside country

Bulgarians take to the streets of Sofia and 15 other cities across the country on Thursday for the sixth time in a month to protest against a government decision to allow construction in the Pirin National Park, the only UNESCO-listed heritage site in the country.


In December, US celebrities including movie star Leonardo DiCaprio pledged their support for a campaign by the Bulgarian branch of the World Wildlife Fund against the planned construction work, and this time around, the demonstrations in Bulgaria will be backed by further protests in at least nine EU cities and another in Skopje, Macedonia.
