In the recent wake of the story with the National Park Strandja being declared as a normal land rather than a protected territory, there’s a somewhat good news – the Supreme Prosecutor Office has initiated a check on the decision of the Supreme Court to overrule the status of the National Park. This is good, but is something which is best described with the Bulgarian proverb „Think about it after you’ve done it (РЎР»РµРґ РґСЉР¶Рґ РєР°С‡СѓР»РєР°)“.
I don’t know what to think of that action of the Supreme Prosecutor Office, but there is a bit light in the tunnel. Also, the recent protests showed one thing – the „civil“ society in Bulgaria is not that completely dead. There are some people that actually do care and do give a #$%& about the country we live in. The pitty thing is what the policemen on these protests showed – that even such little cries for saving our country are pressed and trampled on by the people that are in power. Proof – follow this link to see how by-standers get arrested for just being at a place of protest or for just making stand of what has to be done to save the nature of Bulgaria.
Just to finish off for today, I’m going back to one of my most favorite quotes from famous people:
„… ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.“
John F. Kennedy
