I snapped of a series of shots before joining the mêlée and in the heat of the moment didn’t pay attention to the background. Only during post-processing of the images I realized the slightly ironic note of this frame with the cops running in full riot gear and the huge billboard saying “All Your Friends Are Here”.

This demonstration was the second in a row against a change in the Bulgarian Forestry Act that would allow land owners to build ski tracks and lifts in the mountains without changing the status of the land first.

See my photo report from the anti-government rally in  Sofia yesterday (14 June 2012) on Demotix.
