Bulgaria's far-right, nationalist party Ataka organized Saturday in the capital Sofia its traditional for the country's National Liberation Day march and meeting.

The organizers explained how the party is preparing for the 2012 general elections to a crowd of about 3 000 supporters and followers from all over the country, gathered at the square before the "Alexander Nevsky" Cathedral.

The march started from the National Palace of Culture all the way through downtown Sofia to the "Nevsky" square, with several stops, such as the buildings of the Finance and Economy Ministries. There, Ataka leader, Volen Siderov, demanded the resignation of their respective ministers – Simeon Djankov and Traicho Traikov, for betraying national interests and working for colonizers and for the impoverishment of Bulgarians.

Siderov delivered a 50-minute-long speech, asking for decent jobs for all Bulgarians, European wages, eliminating monopolies and transferring all business back to Bulgarian hands.

He accused European leaders of trying to cut Bulgaria to pieces, as all Great Forces have done, not caring about Bulgarian people and their well-being, and labeled the EU the "new Soviet Union."

The nationalist leader further slammed Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, and his cabinet of not doing anything to improve the situation for fellow countrymen and women.

At the end of the speech, Siderov, appealed to all, who are banging him and want his post, to have the courage to look him in the eye and tell him what they want and let people be the judge.

"Any action against Ataka only serves Turkish and Gipsy interests, and all enemies of Bulgaria," said he.

Despite the large crowd, known as prone to fights, the march went on without incidents and clashes with police.
