About 50 students from NATFIZ participated in a protest against the Rector of their university on Rakovska street in Sofia in Wednesday morning, informs bTV.

They organized an art performance as a sign of protest against their Rector, Lyubomir Halachev, accusing him of putting them under pressure to make them cease the occupation of NATFIZ lecture hall.

NATFIZ students have occupied their lecture hall on Monday to show support to Sofia University students and all other students currently protesting in Bulgaria. We are not protesting against the leadership of NATFIZ and our aim is not to disturb the educational process in our university, our protest is against the government, says a public statement issued by the students to the media.

Blockade of Universities is currently the most popular form of protest among Bulgarian student who oppose the government of PM Plamen Oresharski.
