Why Bulgarians don't take to the streets

In Greece, Spain and Portugal angry citizens are demonstrating against the austerity policies of their governments. In neighbouring Bulgaria, were people are far worse off, hardly anyone takes to the street to protest, the business magazine Manager notes and explains why: "The Bulgarians have so many reasons to protest that they don't know where to start. Whether it's the economy, the crime rate, the judiciary, social affairs, health or education: the problems are so huge and worrying that they have paralysed all society. On the one hand people have lost their patience, on the other they are drowning in self-pity at the fact that the state has sunk so low. Moreover everyone bears individual responsibility for their family, their sick parents and so on. ... And because many families have to fight for their own survival on a daily basis, the day of protest remains a distant prospect and the demonstrations are half-hearted and sporadic."
