    17.02.2013 Consecutive day of protest


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     siGmaManolov and his girlfriend Veronica Popova captured these images on February 17 of the on-going protests in Varna, Bulgaria. People have been protesting in cities all over the country since early last week. He says the protests began as a result of the high electricity bills Bulgarian citizens received for December and January. Though many people were away for holidays, they still received bills upward of 280 levs (Bulgarian currency). He says one-third of the bill is actual electricity usage and two-thirds of it were various taxes and fees. He says the people "have woken up," and they want to be heard. "The protest isn't just about the price of electricity anymore, it's a protest for the right to be citizens in our own country," he says.
