Bulgarian Parliament Jokingly Put 'for Sale' by Youngsters

Inventive youths stretched a banner saying "For Sale" at the front entrance of the National Assembly in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia.

Their deed puzzled police and cheered up drivers and passers.

A video with the scene in front of the parliament was posted on June 21, 2013 on the sharing website YouTube.

The video shows how two young men (a girl calls them Ogi and Veso in a recorded conversation,) managed to hang the white banner saying "For Sale" in red letters on the both sides of the stairs of the Parliament.

The cars passing on “Tsar Osvoboditel” Square at the moment honked, passersby curiously read the “banner,” and a man took a picture of it on his phone. The traffic controller calmly continued his work.

Before the two men could reach the building of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, BAN, a police officer stopped them to check their documents. After that the three of them had a zealous conversation. Less than 3 minutes later, a policeman guarding the parliament took the banner down.

Eventually, one of the two young men took it with himself.

It is not clear when exactly the jokers put the National Assembly on sale. Local media say it can be assumed it happened on June 14 when the National Assembly elected controversial businessman Delyan Peevski for Head of the National Security Agency in a move that triggered massive protests.

There are no barrages on the video and at the time of the election there were not put yet. The barrages were put on the evening of the 14th, when the first protest occurred.
Anti-government protests have been staged in Sofia and other Bulgarian cities for 12 days now.

The authors of the video did not indicate what the consequences were for Ogi and Veso.
