Global financial crisis sparks unrest in Bulgaria.

POLICE
Bulgarian police vowed on Monday to protest until their demands for better salaries and working conditions were met.

FARMERS
Farmers blocked the only Danube bridge link with Romania and rallied across Bulgaria last week demanding the government set a minimum protective price for milk and stop imports of cheap substitutes, such as powdered milk. Prosecutors and authorities said earlier this week they had launched mass checks of milk and meat products safety following the protests.

PROTEST
Last month Bulgarians staged rallies to demand economic reforms in the face of the global slowdown, calling on the Socialist-led government to act or step down. One rally in Sofia turned into a riot.
