March 3rd

Post Posted: Tue Feb 28, 2006 5:19 am

I know no-one ever breaches politics on the forum, but heads up that March 3rd may NOT be a good day to go watch the parades in Sofia. We got stuck in one of these demonstrations years ago, before ATAKA formed and it was NOT a comfortable place to be. Now that there is a strong ultra nationalist, organized party, I'm sure it won't be nicer. Also all the press about the event is going to put up a red flag for hooligans. A good day to do something quiet, nowhere near the city center....

THEY ARE NOT HOOLIGANS!THEY ARE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO DO NOT WANT THAT THE RICH BULGARIANS SELL ALL THE LAND AND PROPERTIES TO ARROGANT,SELFSATISFIED FOREIGNERS WHO ARE LAUGHING AT THE BULGARIAN POVERTY!

POVERTY IS EVERYWHERE AND ESPECIALLY IN USA!

When i studied in Berkeley and went to San Francisco to take lectures of the BAR ASSOCIATION of CA,hords of HOMELESS,HUNGRY PEOPLE WERE BEGGING ON MARKET STREEET.

I lived in the BAY AREA 1 and half years.

THE FOREIGNERS ARE STEALING NOT JUST BULGARIAN LAND...THEY ARE TAKING ALSO JOBS AWAY FOR THE YOUNG BULGARIANS.

THEREFORE STAY IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY...DO NOT TAKE AWAY THE LITTLE BIT WHAT IS LEFT FOR THE BULGARIANS!

WHEN THEY WANT TO GO TO USA OR UK,OR AUSTRALIA...NOBODY GIVES THEM WORK PERMIT AND USUALLY THEY ARE WASHING THE DISHES IN RESTAURANTS OR DOING SOME OTHER MANUAL JOBS,EVEN IF THEY ARE MEDICAL DOCTORS,LAWYERS,nurses a.s.o.

"I know no-one ever breaches politics on the forum"

I think this is an important message

and although not eliquently put, but anyone can understand that there is some anomosity from some locals, and yes there are poor people in most countries

Spain was poor not long ago and the influx of foreign money and being part of the EU has changed all that, and I can only hope that this will be true for Bulgaria


I do see what you say , and just wish you would put it down without trying to insult everyone.

I actally work with a Bulgarian who has a house in UK and Bulgaria and is buying more property in Bulgaria. He is happy about it. His parents house was bought by a German doctor. His parents were also pleased, maybe the neighbours weren't but you can never please everyone

- FOREIGNERS WHO ARE LAUGHING AT THE BULGARIAN POVERTY!

I would NEVER laugh at anyone's poverty. There is alot of poverty where I live and there are no jobs for our young people either - they have to leave their homeland to find work.


POVERTY IS EVERYWHERE AND ESPECIALLY IN USA!



THE FOREIGNERS ARE STEALING NOT JUST BULGARIAN LAND...THEY ARE TAKING ALSO JOBS AWAY FOR THE YOUNG BULGARIANS.

I won't be stealing anyone's job - I will be retiring to Bulgaria and, therefore, putting some money INTO the Bulgarian economy and in my own small way I'll be giving employment in my village.

THEREFORE STAY IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY...DO NOT TAKE AWAY THE LITTLE BIT WHAT IS LEFT FOR THE BULGARIANS!

WHEN THEY WANT TO GO TO USA OR UK,OR AUSTRALIA...NOBODY GIVES THEM WORK PERMIT AND USUALLY THEY ARE WASHING THE DISHES IN RESTAURANTS OR DOING SOME OTHER MANUAL JOBS,EVEN IF THEY ARE MEDICAL DOCTORS,LAWYERS,nurses a.s.o.[/quote]

I agree wholeheartedly with you on this - but don't blame the Scottish people [and the rest of the UK as well for the actions of our dictator Prime Minister ]- he ignores us too. I am writing to my MP about the way they are treating Bulgarian people [and other nationalities too who are badly dealt with]

I am trying to learn Bulgarski - I never for a minute expect Bulgarian people to speak English. Where I live, English is not the mother tongue [it is Gaelic ] so we are quite good at learning other languages. The Scots are very friendly, generous and hospitable people.

Scots are great - I've dealt with Scottish people for the last couple of years and can only say good things.

janhargreen, how come you chose Mlekarevo? It's near Yambo, right? I have a grandma who lives there? what do you like about the area?

hi Halifax
we chose the area because - well, firstly we found a house which suited us - we needed a house all on one level; we wanted one that wasn't hemmed in on all sides by other houses; we needed to have easy access ie not a dirt track; we needed a house on level land for my husband's mobility scooter; we wanted to be within driving distance of the coast; we wanted to have shops, cafes etc within walking distance - where we are just now it's 8 miles to the nearest shop and we have to drive to EVERYTHING; we wanted to be near the main highways and also be able to use public transport instead of me having to drive everywhere (we're 45 miles from the nearest [and only] town here) and also we want to explore all the historical and cultural things plus be near to a spa. So, we have bought our house in Mlekarevo. Does your baba stay in Mlekarevo?
Smile
