<![CDATA[#Bulgaria protests - Day 40, blood and clashes #ДАНСwithMe]]>

Over 100 people, including MPs, current and former ministers and deputy ministers, and journalists, have been blocked in the Parliament building by a crowd of anti-government protesters. According to reports the number of people trapped inside Parliament is 109.

Storified by Ruslan Trad · Tue, Jul 23 2013 21:13:51

The "hostages" are expected to be escorted out of Parliament into a bus, but the protesters are trying to prevent the vehicle from getting near the exits of the building. On Tuesday evening, three parliamentary committees discussed and approved a government proposal for a budget revision. The people are unable to leave Parliament as a crowd of protesters chanting "mafia" and "resign" and booing refuse to disperse.Tensions escalate and there are occasional clashes between demonstrators and the police.

Non-Syrians going on and on re: any mainstream media updates on Syria, the ones that seem most popular (today it is the latest Assad speech), vomiting their strained poetic opinions on the rest of us, feigning care when they clearing do not care one way or another. The same group who updated us all re: Libya, who now ignore what the mainstream media also ignores - the not-so-popular occurrences post-uprising. Non-Syrians on my TL are much louder than the Syrians, their voices raised to such a degree that they mute all else. Syria's future is for Syrians to decide upon. What happens to this glorious nation, to its people - it should remain up to those who belong to it. Just as I cannot dictate to any Palestinian what political party to follow, what should transpire re: future of occupied Palestine it is of no one else's concern when it comes to Syria what should come to fruition therein. There is a difference between being in solidarity and taking over. I'm seeing little solidarity and lots of unwarranted opinion-giving. No one gives a damn re: who you hate, how much you hate them or your cute posters and slogans. Syria belongs to the people OF Syria. Solidarity is not the egotistical overtaking of native voices, but the amplification of them

What a wonderful speech delivered today by president Assad of Syria on d state of d nation.pls let's dis crisis stop bcz so many lives had gone

Bashar al-Assad speech reminds me of the last days of Muammar Gaddafi! Allah shall win!
