Solidarity with Kostadina Kuneva (Updated)
Yesterday, on the International Women's Day 8th of March, a demonstration was held in support of Kostadina Kuneva outside Sofia University.
Kuneva is a Bulgarian woman and the mother of a son with a heart disease. Along other expenses, her sons medical treatment requires more money than Kuneva, with a degree in history from Sofia University could find in Bulgaria. She therefore went to work as a cleaning lady in Greece.
In Greece she organized immigrant workes into trade unions to defend their rights against unlawful exploitation. The unlawful exploiters didn't like this and hired killers, that on the night of the 23rd of December attacked Kuneva in her home. The attack was in the bestialic cammora byzantine style. Kuneva was forced to drink acid, and acid was threwn in her face.
Kuneva was hospitalized, and was still in hospital in the end of February .
The demonstration was organised by the student's organisation Priviz, and has been covered by Vida Delcheva in her own blog, and on Bulgaria e nasha
