Bulgarian actors supporting protests demanding the resignation of the Socialist-endorsed government are organizing another demonstration in front of the parliament Monday.
The news was reported by the Bulgarian Standard Daily.
The concept of the demonstration, which is in support of the "Early Risers"university students against the Cabinet of Prime Minister, Plamen Oresharski, is to imitate a funeral procession similar to the one in popular theater director Alexander Morfov's play "Life is Beautiful".
The slogan of the actors-protesters is "Let's Bury Bulgarian Political Morality". The demonstration will leave at 2:30 pm from the public park Crystal towards the building of the Parliament.
Protesters against the Oresharski cabinet first walked out on June 14, after the appointment of controversial media mogul Delyan Peevski for head of Bulgaria's State Agency for National Security (DANS).
Peevski's reinstatement as MP after his resignation from the Security Agency provoked a student occupation at Sofia University in October by the so-called Early Risers.
Protesters have claimed that the Oresharski cabinet, backed by the Bulgarian Socialist Party and the liberal Movement for Rights and Freedoms exemplifies in an acute form the deep influence of the so-called Bulgarian oligarchy on politics.
