Following the forced closure of some of Bulgaria’s most loved BitTorrent trackers, the file-sharing peers of Bulgaria have done the thing they do best : they organized a human BitTorrent swarm in Sophia – and hundreds joined it to protest against the government.
After the Bulgarian government blocked access to some of Bulgaria’s most-loved BitTorrent trackers, the file-sharing community weren’t just going to sit back and take it. They decided to hold a demonstration and on March 15th the organizers applied to the Sophia Municipality for permission. It was granted and the protest – which was coordinated on internet forums – took place on Sunday, ending in the South Park.
And as you can see from this photograph, the Bulgarians are very passionate about this issue, turning up in their hundreds to offer support.
