Protesters have blocked a central boulevard in Sofia.

Thousands of mainly younger, well-educated Bulgarians have been rallying in Sofia and other cities since June 14 to demand the resignation of the Socialist-led cabinet. Up to 30,000 daily in Sofia alone – the protests in the EU’s poorest member are unprecedented since communism fell two decades ago.
