LETTER FROM BULGARIAN CSOs TO EUROPEAN COMMISSION REPRESENTATIVES

15 January 2020

In the last few years, Bulgaria has faced challenges regarding the civil society similar to those in some other countries of Central and Eastern Europe: smear campaigns against groups of CSOs, increasing anti-EU propaganda and actions stigmatizing human rights groups.

62 civil society organizations signed a letter to the European Commission representatives asking them to:

  •  To make a clear public statement on the importance of civil society;
  •  To urge the Bulgarian government to protect civic space and stand against hate campaigns questioning the need for civil society organizations;
  •  To meet with Bulgarian CSOs in order to discuss their concerns and support the organizations in reaffirming core EU values and principles.

Please, read the letter here.
