I am writing another post on the Pirin case. This is a special one, however.
If you remember, several days ago the eurodeputee Ska Keller was on a visit in Bulgaria. She joined the protests in defence of Pirin and held an inspiring speech (or gobbling, as it turned out later) in front of the protesters. Right then the National Frontier for Salvation of Bulgaria, a self-proclaimed nationalistic party in Bulgaria, which is part of the governmental coalition right now, issued a harsh statement against her. The leader of this party, Valeri Simeonov, is also a vice prime minister of the current government in power in Bulgaria. Up until now I had read only quotes from that statement and they were outrageous enough. However, tonight I read the whole thing. It's SCANDALIZING. This being an epochal understatement. So I took the time to translate the whole statement so that I can show it to you. I have interjected a few comments - the first were just to clarify things you couldn't otherwise know
