Bulgarians, Romanians join in protest at Danube Bridge 2 against tyre processing plant

Bulgarians and Romanians joined in an August 31 protest against a tyre processing plant that they allege will be harmful to their health.

The protesters blocked traffic to the Danube Bridge 2 at Vidin – Calafat for about 15 minutes, preventing about five goods lorries and two cars from getting to the Bulgarian-Romanian border.

The group of about 250 protesters said five villages near the Danube town said that they would fight all the way to stop the tyre processing plant in Slanotran from getting underway.

They were supported by representatives from five Romanian municipalities on the opposite bank of the Danube River.
