A Macedonian activist confronted Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov in Blagoevgrad on Thursday, asking him when is Bulgaria going to allow Macedonians to freely set up their organizations. Over a dozen times Macedonian groups from Blagoevgrad and other cities in the region of Pirin Macedonia, have successfully taken Bulgaria to the European Court of Human Rights, which found that their right to organize has been violated, but Bulgaria never implements the verdicts.

We won against Bulgaria in Strasbourg 14 times and still we don’t have our organization, the man is heard saying, while other in the crowd hiss at him and tell him to go away.

Petkov promised to hear him out later, but then he himself left the scene.
