Bulgaria's 'dance with me' protests

Tens of thousands gather peacefully to protest corruption.

Every day since June 14, tens of thousands of Bulgarians have taken to the streets promptly at 18:30 to protest government corruption. The controversial plan to appoint businessman and MP Delyan Peevski as head of the National  Security Agency, which has since been cancelled, sparked the initial protests.

As we are seeing elsewhere in the world, social media is playing an integral role in the protests. Bulgarians are using Facebook to organise, and Twitter, using the hashtag #ДАНСwithme, for real-time updates.
#ДАНСwithme is a play on words. ДАНС, the acronym of the state's National Security Agency in Bulgarian, is pronounced like 'dance'.
