I don't know whether this has blipped on the radar either on this list
or in the mainstream media, but Bulgaria has seen mass protests
countrywide over the past couple weeks. The main reason for the
protests has been sharp increases in electricity and heating rates,
and the protests have caused the current government of Boyko Borisov
to resign.

Here are some reports and analysis of the events. Comrades should pay
special attention to the last three, as they were written by actual
Bulgarians.
