    This is NOT true. The Government said that only one more lift and new pistes would be built. No hotel infrastructure at all!! People are protesting because they do not trust the Government and they assume the deforestation will be on a larger scale than announced. But practically everyone agrees we need new pistes and ski infrastructure. We have great nature,we need to be morons not to use it and make money out of it.

    This wouldn’t be under consideration if we weren’t desperate for resources because there are waaaaaaay too many humans.

    Nature is one of the only things Bulgaria has managed to save ,if that goes to hell too ,what would be left ..? Glad to see people are protesting,not sure to what extend it would help tho..Sad,very sad.Instead of going forward,BG seems to be going backwards.

    just to be clear - they are not chanting 'don't cut pirin into pieces' but 'pirin is not banica (which is a traditional bulgarian meal which can be cut into peaces), fuck your mothers (though abridged to 'your mother' - slavs are nifty like that)

    Our government doesn't have ANY other priority, but serving their own circle of interests. It's all about the money, you know. Bulgaria is fighting hard for it's nature! That's the best we have!!
