This powerful photo of a student protestor and a police officer crying has gone viral in Bulgaria. Here is what Buzz Feed had to say about it:
Imgur user plamentanev posted this image from Bulgaria on Wednesday. He described the scene:
“This photo really moved me so much that I decided to try and raise awarenes to what is going on in my country. This girl was crying and begging the policeman not to hit her or any of her friends. Then the policeman started crying as well and he said to her: “You just hold on girl.”
See he wasn’t going to beat her ( like his colleges did to many others ) but he was given an order to push everybody who was protesting against our corrupt goverment so that the goverment officials could go to their homes.“Divide and conquer” that’s thair moto i guess.They turn us against each other.
This photo is from a protest happening in Bulgaria right now. Students are protesting Bulgaria’s socialist government and poverty, even chaining themselves to the doors of Sofia University. They are also clashing with the police outside of parliament.
Not long after this photo was taken, it went viral on Bulgarian Facebook, and has been shared literally thousands of times.
Does this photo move you?
