Inmates strike at Sofia prison, Bulgaria

There’s really not much English-language information about this situation available at the moment, but according to the Bulgarian Prisoners’ Association:

There is a mass strike by over 60 prisoner workers in Sofia Prison in protest over the order for slave labour by the National prison Director Svilen Tsvetanov as he has ordered prisoners to work 4 times more then is physically possible.

For updates and more information on the situation as it develops, keep an eye on the Bulgarian Prisoners’ Association fb page. To help support the work of the Bulgarian Prisoners’ Association, you can donate via paypal to or by using the “donate” button on their website. (If you’re wondering about why there’s an “r” in there, it’s because they can’t seem to make up their minds about whether they want “rehabilitation” in their name or not.)


About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
