Apart from the cool feeling that you could be a part of a "Twitter revolution", there is another reason you should care about the non-violent protests taking place in Bulgaria for 8th day in a row. 10 to 20 thousand come out on the streets everyday in a peaceful march, often accompanied by dancing, singing and witty slogans.
Dance With Me is a non-violent social media/street protest movement ultimately aimed against the structures that make possible organized crime and its various faces: drug trafficking, racketeering, human trafficking, arms trafficking, illicit trade and tax embezzlement, corruption, ATM scamming, robbery and theft. It's precisely the government-mafia nexus that made it possible for organized crime to thrive in our country over the past 25 years. It's precisely that nexus we here are trying to battle and get rid of asking for a good government free of corruption, mafia ties, and immoral game-playing.
How is this relevant to you? When a Bulgarian drug trafficking boss gets shot in the center of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, his activities can be traced back to the government-mafia nexus here. When Bulgarian beggars ask you for money or try to steal your wallet in the center of London, you should know they are organized by the same mafia circles we don't want in the highest echelons of the government here.
What happens here affects your front yard. It defines whether you and your family would be safer or not.
Bulgaria is a main exporter of organized crime for Europe and the "Dance with Me" protests are ultimately about changing that, so that we can also be a better European neighbor to you. For a seventh day in a row we are out on the streets, protesting the absurdity of mafia and organized crime being a part of the political system.
So, will you "Dance with Me"? You can follow us and tweet with hash tag #ДАНСwithme, talk to your friends about it, схаре our photos in social media and this way support us in our attempt to live in a better country. Check out the photos on Twitter.
I promise, many of them will warm your heart.
